Transcript 14 NEWS JANUARY 14, 2000 • HOUSTON VOICE Double homicide still unsolved Betty Parker, the mother of a gay man slain in Texas City, is organizing a vigil to mark the one year anniversary of the unsolved case. > Continued from Page 1 "There is nothing new as far as breaking it," Capt. Ron Schoolcraft said. "The fire did damage, destroyed a lot of stuff. We just haven't got a break yet." A month after the slayings, friends and relatives of the two men held an emotional vigil to renew interest in the case. Family members held candles and wore white T-shirts emblazoned "In Loving Memory" and a large photo of Morris. A local pastor led them in prayer. "We are praying for each other, and for those who did this," the Rev. Tyron Collins said. "For the Lord said, 'Vengeance is mine.' We must leave it with him." Family members of the victims have said the brutality-' of the slayings showed hate was a factor. "It was overkill, a brutal murder. 1 just don't understand how they can sleep at night. I just keep praying that they can get one of them," Parker said. The two men were friendly and traveled heavily, family members said. Morris, a hairdresser, had returned to Texas City a year earlier after living in Las Vegas. Tryals, unemployed for nearly a year, always kept a positive outlook and uplifted people with his compliments, said Gwendolyn Tryals, his sister. "Every time you saw him, he had a smile on his face/' Gwendolyn Tryals said. "He always tried to make you feel good. He didn't have that kind of an enemy that would do that to him." But her brother was too trusting, something she had warned him about in the past. "It is sad that we hate people because of their race, their gender," Gwendolyn Tryals said. "I told him to be careful, 'You are black and gay—you have two strikes against you.' I told him he needs to watch himself." Family members remain hopeful that the case will be solved. "It's a small town, somebody knows something," Parker said. "The leads they did have when it first happened, it went nowhere. The only hope 1 have is God to make [the suspects] show their face, at least one of them. You feel like your hands are tied." Dallas woman charged in slaying of roommate Police say 'abusive relationship' ended in slaying Dallas Voice DALLAS—A north Dallas woman has been arrested and charged with killing her long-time roommate, police said. Lisa Rae Meeks, 35, was arrested on Dec. 28 after the body of her roommate, Danielle D'Alexandris, 35, was discovered on Christmas Day in a pond at the apartment complex where the two women lived. "From what we know so far, it appears that there was an argument, and the suspect killed her roommate," said Dallas police Sgt. Ross Salverino. "In an attempt to dispose of the body, the suspect then put the body in a trash bag and left it in a pond there on the [apartment complex] property." Meeks' court-appointed attorney, Tim Menchu of Dallas, had no comment. Salverino said the two roommates had lived for "six or seven years in something of an abusive relationship." But he said he was unable to confirm rumors that the two women were lesbian lovers or provide details about the alleged abusive nature of the relationship between the two women. Two residents of the apartment complex where the women lived found D'Alexandris' body on Dec. 25, investigators said. The residents had noticed a garbage bag in the pond a day earlier. Because of the cold weather, they waited for warmer weather before attempting to retrieve the bag, police said. As they pulled it from the water, the trash bag opened and the residents saw the dead woman's hand, according to a police report. The two residents then summoned authorities. Meeks was arrested after investigators found trash bags in her apartment matching the one used to dispose of D'Alexandris' body. Investigators also said Meeks had several bruises indicating that she may have been in a physical altercation.
