Transcript 6 MONTROSE VOICE/DECEMBER 12, 1986 Police Charge Physician with Sexual Assault By Sheri Cohen Darbonne Montrose Voice A local physician who worked closely with the original founders ofthe Montrose Clinic has been charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child in connection with a series of encounters that allegedly occurred four years ago. Richard Fry O'Brien, 59, of 206 Arbor- way, turned himself in to police Wednesday on the advice of his minister and an assistant district attorney. He was released under $10,000 bond. Police Seek Killer of Stabbing Victim Police are seeking leads in the slaying of a man who, according to his brother, had left a Montrose bar shortly before he was stabbed to death in his south west Houston apartment Sunday, Dec. 7. William Wayne Price was found in his third floor apartment at Savannah Club Apartments, 4444 Westheimer, after several neighbors called police and apartment security, Homicide Sgt. Danny James said. The neighbors reported hearing a disturbance in the apartment, James said. 1 William Wayne Price The assailant reportedly jumped from the third story window and fled, police said. One neighbor told police at the scene that he had seen a man in a back patio of the apartment complex. According to the witness, the man climbed over a back fence and fled on foot, James said. Sarah Stone, Savannah Club property supervisor, declined comment on the killing or witness report. Joe Porro of Aid for AIDS said Price's brother contacted him to donate grocer ies left in the apartment to the organization. Porro reported that the brother told him Price had been to a Montrose bar Sunday afternoon. Price died of multiple stab wounds at around 5:45 p.m., Sgt. James said. Sgt. Jim Ramsey, one of the investigating officers, said the HPD Homicide Division is soliciting the aid of the gay community to help solve the crime. He said the man who was seen on the complex grounds, described only as being black, is a suspect, and is being sought for questioning. Ramsey said police are preparing flyers with the victim's photograph, to be circulated in the Montrose area. James Gordon Hoffman, 46, father of the alleged abuse victim, was also charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, police said. The Austin resident had not yet been arrested Thursday, but has spoken to police in Houston about the allegations and is expected to turn himself in, HPD spokesman Sgt. J.C. Mosier said. Richard O'Brien when he was contributing to the Montrose Clinic O'Brien's twin brother, Robert F. O'Brien, was Montrose Clinic's original medical director and one of its founders. Richard O'Brien also worked with the clinic as a volunteer physician in its early days. The O'Briens, however, are also familiar to the gay community because of their vehement in vol vement in a campaign to oppose an ordinance prohibiting discrimination against gays in city employment. Annise Parker, president of the Houston Gay Political Caucus, said the doctors gave extensive financial support for the homophobic media blitz during the so-called gay rights referendum of 1985. Gay activist Ray Hill reported that the names of both O'Brien brothers appeared on a list of major contributors to the anti-gay "Campaign for Houston" during the referendum. Hoffman's son, now 11, told authorities he repeatedly performed sex acts with the two men in O'Brien's medical office. Harris County Assistant District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal said he became involved indirectly when a minister at Second Baptist Church referred O'Brien to him for legal advice. Both Rosenthal and O'Brien are members of the church. Rosenthal said he had seen O'Brien previously, but was not acquainted with him. O'Brien consulted Rosenthal for advice regarding an offense he claimed at the time happened over five years ago. The statute of limitations for the offense is five years, Rosenthal said. A court document states that on Feb. 15, 1982, the boy, then seven years old, performed sex acts with O'Brien and Hoffman at O'Brien's Memorial area office. Rosenthal said he advised O'Brien to call the police. Tom Audette, Montrose Clinic's present executive director, stated that the O'Brien's have not been associated with the clinic for at least three years. He said the clinic was originally run by a committee comprised primarily of medical professionals, but the governing structure changed in early 1982. The present board includes both physicians and lay people, Audette said. 7 Days One Complimentary Entree Per Party. Mon.-Thurs. Fri., Sat., and Sun.
