Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com DECEMBER 12, 2003 7 local news Police mum on Ross Allyn murder investigation Police are saying little as they investigate leads in lobbyist's homicide By BINNIE FISHER Three weeks after gay Houston lobbyist Ross Allyn was found dead of a gunshot wound inside his burning home, police have zipped their lips about the case. Media inquiries are being forwarded to the office of John Cannon, Houston Police public information officer. He says homicide investigators have given him nothing to report. Allyn was found shot to death early on Nov. 20 inside his burning home at 919 Worthshire. He had been shot in the back of the neck and was found near the front door, as though he had tried to escape his assailant. Police have appealed to gays and lesbians to come forward with any information that may help them find Allyn's killer. Allyn, who in 1997 was caught up in an FBI bribery sting that sent City Councilman Ben Reyes and Houston Port Commissioner Betti Maldonado to prison, never got over the feeling he was being watched. Although a judge dropped the case against him, he remarked often to friends that he felt he was still under scrutiny Police spokesman Cannon said this isn't the first time investigators have been hesitant to talk about an ongoing investigation. "I know they are working on a number of leads," Cannon said. "There are a lot of players involved." There were many players because there were many facets to Allyn's life, providing numerous avenues for investigation. Friends have suggested that his life as a lobbyist could have turned up enemies. There are those who have wondered whether he took the wrong person home on the evening before his murder. His abuse of cocaine was well known, and some have speculated that could have brought about his untimely end. Police are under intense pressure from the City Council to solve the case. Allyn counted several council members among his friends. The evening before his death, he attended a fundraiser for Annise Parker, who was elected city controller in the Dec. 6 runoff. Cannon said when homicide investigators have tied up the loose ends, they will release information to the public, perhaps even the name of a suspect. "When they are ready to discuss it in the media, they'll talk," Cannon said. d MORE INFO Houston Police Homicide Division 713-308-3600 Rep.
