Mysterious ‘Coordinated Attack’ Suspected In DEATH of Abilene, Texas Police Officer In His OWN HOME
On Monday of this week, Abilene, Texas police officer Don Allen was found dead in his home. Since then, the police have been very reticent to release details on the case, but it’s looking more and more like he was murdered, and that there was a “coordinated attack” to kill him at his home.
Officer Don Allen, 27, was found deceased inside a home on Yucca Drive around 7:00 p.m. No one else was inside the residence when officers arrived on scene.
It was immediately clear the situation surrounding the death was ‘suspicious’, and multiple agencies including the Texas Rangers and the FBI joined the investigation, trying to exhaust the multiple leads that were pouring in.
During a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Abilene’s Chief of Police Stan Standridge said “the initial reaction was fear,” but further investigation has led authorities to believe this was a planned, not random act.
A direct quote from a court document related to this case confirms those suspicions, claiming “this homicide does not appear to be a random act. Based on the information provided by eye witnesses and provided by [the investigating detective’s] investigation, [the investigating detective] believes this was a premeditated act.”
Another paragraph in the document alleges “communication occurred between multiple parties to plan and carry out the murder.”
The Clyde Police Department, that first responded to the call, has said that there was no reason to be alarmed and that there was no evidence that he was targeted because he was a police officer:
Notice the odd wording even in this statement – “no reason to believe at this time that Officer Allen was targeted because he was a police officer.” So he COULD have been targeted, but there’s no reason to believe it would be over his career?
We’ll be keeping an eye on this story and will report when more details emerge.
