Was Death of George H.W. Bush's Doctor an Act of Revenge?

Arrest warrant issued for suspect in killing of former President George HW Bush’s doctor

The suspect in the killing of a cardiologist who once treated President George H.W. Bush apparently had a grudge over the death of his mother during surgery by the doctor 20 years ago, Houston police said Wednesday.

Pappas may have been seeking revenge for his mother, who died on the doctor's operating table more than 20 years ago, authorities said.

Hausknect was fatally shot while riding a bicycle to work last month. Authorities said the shooter rode past Hausknecht before turning around and firing.

"This man is unsafe, this man is capable, this man has some skills", Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said at news conference, according to The Houston Chronicle, noting he likely had multiple firearms and had not been seen for almost two days.

Former president George H.W. Bush waves as he leaves Methodist Hospital with his cardiologist, Mark Hausknecht, on February 25, 2000, after a news conference in Houston.

Police highlighted Hausknecht with a green circle and the suspect with a red circle on images posted on Twitter.

Other surveillance images showed the suspected gunman just behind Hausknecht as both headed north on Main across West Holcombe Boulevard, police said. Phone calls to Pappas went straight to voicemail.

Huawei Overtakes Apple as New #2 Smartphone Maker
Globally, the smartphone market continued its slowdown with shipments slipping 1.8 percent for the quarter to 342 million units. Huawei grew a whopping 41 percent YoY and managed to sell 54 million units, 13 million (or nearly 32%) more than Apple .

The following morning, the Harris County District's Attorney's Office issued a murder warrant for Pappas' arrest. "And, sadly, we have a person who lost their life".

"He is considered to be armed and risky, and people should not try to deal with him directly", Acevedo said.

That phone number is linked to recent listings on a firearms auction website for several guns, ammunition, tactical vests and ballistic plates for vehicle doors.

Pappas worked for 30 years as a constable, according to Texas Commission on Law Enforcement records.

Investigative reporter Jeremy Rogalski uncovered the online ads on national firearms marketplace sites and the Houston Greensheet. A spokesman for Houston police declined to comment on the ads. Rode past the doctor, turned and fired two shots.

Hausknecht and his wife, Georgia Hsieh, lived in an upscale neighborhood not far from the Texas Medical Center in southwest Houston. If you see him or know of his whereabouts contact police immediately. The fatal shooting happened moments after that crossing, one block away, police said. But police believe 20 years of resentment harbored by the son of one of his former patients boiled over and led to the killing.
