Posted on 08/03/2018 1:27:49 PM PDT by Enlightened1
The man charged with murdering George H.W. Bushs former cardiologist committed suicide Friday after being confronted by two members of the Houston Police department, officials said.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo declared "This is our suspect" at a press conference less than an hour after Joseph Pappas, 62, shot himself near his home in Houston.
Acevedo explained that a witness called authorities at 9:21 A.M. to say he had seen a suspect he believed was Pappas, as well as a wallet with his ID that he left on the ground. Acevedo said he wasn't sure if Pappas left the wallet on purpose or by accident.
When police arrived, they found Pappas wearing body armor. He did not comply with officers' commands and, when more officers closed in, Pappas shot himself in the head, around 3.5 miles from his home.
Acevedo said he was convinced there may have been a shootout with police had a second officer not arrived.

Last week the doctor for George Bush Sr was randomly assassinated in broad daylight on his way to work?
Well, now the primary suspect in that murder has now been found dead.
How convenient, no loose ends.
Umm...stinkier than a barge full of month-old seafood off the coast of Africa.
Does that sound like something a 62 year old guy would do? Look at the picture of the guy on the bicycle. Does he look 62?
He was about to reveal that Bush, McCain, Romney, and Hillary Clinton are just several different forms taken by one shape-shifting lizard alien.
Or the suspect was an evil sociopath.
Sorry but ancient alien researchers say “no” this time.
Here is a picture of the assassin.
Sorry. It’s from the CNN website. Does the bicyclist look 65? I assume the police found a similar bicycle in the garage.
Interesting that they found his wallet on the ground. The clowns think of everything.
However now that the murderer/assassin has been bumped by a mysterious 3rd Party and the case is now being forced into closure makes me wonder if the goodly doctor was a victim of blackmail.
Thus the FBI/CIA/NSA/Clintoons Killer Kleanup Krew/Deep State assassins were called in to clean up this spaghetti noodle mystery of 1) who is leaking 2) and who is spying 3) who is the first murderer and 4) who killed the killers's killer's.
Paging Tom Clancy! Pickup on the House Red Phone.
Looking at the picture I think it could be the guy.
May the doctor rest in peace.
But what a colorful story with so many points of interest.
A celeb icon (Bush) an unusual method of murder (rushing by on a bicycle, not a car) and a dramatic finish with the culprit dead by his own hand before the cops could close in for the kill.
And, the secrets died with the guy, as you said “no loose ends.”
No Clinton murders were that neat. they could learn from this—unless they did it.
The saddest Clinton killing was the one where an informant said “M” was going to come forward to tell about Bill’s scandal. The killer went to a small restaurant, rushed in through the front doors and shot Mary (”M”) and rushed out. Police absurdly claimed it was a robbery—no attempt to take the money, no one handing over any purse or wallet, the woman was quickly and quietly stared at and murdered without a word).
Then... ..Drudge sent out the world scoop story on the Drudge Report: Monica Lewinsky had a sexual escapade in the White House with Bill Clinton. SHE was “M.” What a sad story.
GOOD!! Why is this fishy?
My beloved brother died on the table under the knife of one of the most skilled surgeons we could find. He did his job properly and a damn <blood clot killed my brother. The skilled surgeon did not kill my brother.
The surgeon was as devasted as I.
Medicine is not perfect.
No, he sure doesn't, particularly given the lithe build and the very clear, fair complexion. I was leaning toward a contract killing, with revenge or financial gain as the motive.
I wish they had caught this guy alive. I would have liked to have heard what he had to say for himself. His mother passed away 20 years ago. Usually time will dull the pain and anger but Pappas must have nursed that anger to keep it alive for so many years. Does the guy have wife? I'd like to see her debriefed. Surely she was aware of his obsession.
The photo of the guy was photoshopped, there is no proof the “shooter” even existed outside of the “Media”...
This reminds me of the Hollywood publicist Ronnie Chasen's homicide. She was killed by a guy on a bicycle who then committed "suicide." Then a coverup followed - at best an unbelievably incompetent investigation. Chasen was wealthy, and her heirs did not press for an investigation.
These things will continue as long as the clintons are not behind bars.
The killer was crazy and had a whole hit list of people he blamed for his mothers death in surgery 20 years ago. Glad he took himself out and didnt blame the cops for it.
Maybe the decedent found out something on the Bush cartel while he was working as a law enforcement officer.
