    Heard this on the news this morning, but so far the suspect and victim are unnamed.

    "AUSTIN (KXAN) — University of Texas at Austin police are investigating a homicide after a woman’s body was found on campus near the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center. Authorities discovered the body in Waller Creek around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    The victim’s identity has not been released at this time, but Austin-Travis County EMS says the victim is in her 20s. During the press conference, authorities did not indicate if they were actively looking for a possible suspect. The death is being investigated by UTPD, the Austin Police Department and the Texas Rangers. As of Wednesday, APD has taken the lead on the investigation.

    President Greg Fenves said in a Tweet Tuesday evening he has directed 50 officers from UTPD, APD and DPS to patrol campus. The school is also encouraging students to walk in pairs and take their headphones and earbuds out.

    “The University of Texas is a community. It Is a family. When a tragedy occurred on campus, in our home, we have to come together and watch out for each other and support each other,” said Fenves on Tuesday afternoon.

    Students were sent an alert from UTPD around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. Counseling services are available for students."

    An arrest has been made. Unfortunately, the suspect is 17, making him, if convicted, ineligible for the Texas Death Needle.

    Arrest Made in Killing of University of Texas Student Haruka Weiser
    by ERIK ORTIZ

    Austin police said Friday they have arrested a 17-year-old in connection with the killing of a University of Texas freshman this week. Haruka Weiser, an 18-year-old dance and theater major, was last seen alive on the Austin campus Sunday night before she was reported missing the following morning. Her body was discovered near a creek on Tuesday.

    A news conference was planned for 10:30 a.m. CT / 11:30 a.m. ET.

    On the night Weiser disappeared, a suspect was caught on surveillance walking around the area at about 10 p.m. and again after 11 p.m. while steering around a red or pink women's bike, police said Thursday. Authorities described the suspect as a black man about 6-feet-tall.

    Remember ladies, don't be racist and clutch your purse when a black man gets on the elevator with you at the parking garage.

    Here's the deal too, most black folk are decent...but for whatever reason (some like to say poverty causes crime, institutional racism, plain bad people, lack of strong family structure, etc.) blacks cause a disproportionate amount of crime and whining about people noticing this even with evidence doesn't help fix the problem. The problem can be fixed either by attacking any of the suspected root causes or just locking bad people up regardless of race.

    Is the criminal justice system anti male because 90% of the prisons are filled with men? Should women be a little leery of being alone with a man in say a hotel room if you have no intentions of having sex with him and don't know him well? Is that discriminatory or does it make good sense?

    According to obama, you would think that it is all the fault of White Police officers.
