Transcript MARCH 21, 1986/MONTROSE VOICE 3 HOBO Establishes Reward for Pantzer's Murderer By Connie Woods Montrose Voice Staff Reporter "We are outraged!" Alan Pierce, owner of the Brazos River Bottom and president of the Houston Organization of Bar Owners, said Tuesday during a meeting to establish a reward for the arrest and conviction of the person who murdered Marion Pantzer. Pantzer, the owner of "Just" Marion and Lynn's on Richmond Avenue was gunned down in her club March 11. According to the Houston Police Department, a man in a ski mask entered the bar with the intention to commit a robbery. Pantzer was shot several times in the chest as she sat at the bar talking with friends. She was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where she died shortly afterwards. "I want to get it across to the Houston Police Department how upset we are with this. It's not just a gay bar problem but it is a community problem," Pierce said. On Tuesday, March 18, five committee members of HOBO established a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed Pantzer. Members ofthe committee each contributed $100 to open the bank account to begin the fund. montrose VOICE AND TEXAS*STAH MONTROSE, TEXAS Populalion (est. 19B5) 32,000 Census tracts 401 01, 401.02. 40201, 402.02. 405.02, 403 and 404 01 Zip codes (roughly) 77006. 77019 (portion). 77098 Bounded (roughly) Shepherd Dr (west).

R.'s and the Montrose Mining Company; Ted Lenze, owner of Chutes; Terry Flood, rnanager of 611; and Ron Sioux, owner of Cousins. The committee also decided to offer a $1000 reward for the arrest and conviction of any armed robber in Harris County. "I will probably write another letter to Police Chief Lee Brown about the muggings, the robberies and the problems in the community," Pierce explained. He said he had written a letter during the past several weeks concerning the problems in the Montrose area. He pointed out that only recently one of his employees, walking along the street in the Montrose area, was stabbed several times, including having his jugular vein cut. After being hospitalized for several days, the victim has returned to work. Pierce also pointed out that several robberies and murders have occurred within the gay community but no arrest has ever been made. "Ben Ladeaux was stabbed multiple times about four years ago. Pete St. George was murdered and Jim Chappell. And now Marion," he said. He also mentioned three bars that had been robbed during the recent weeks: the Venture-N, Outlaws, and E. J.'s. "It is so timely right now," Pierce said concerning raising the money for the reward. "If we don't get going right now the anger and the concern will surely diminish. Something has got to be done in Montrose," he added. Pierce said the committee had made a list of some 80 businesses and organizations in the community who will be contacted concerning the $100 contribution for the reward fund. By late afternoon Tuesday, the Westheimer Cafe had sent Pierce a check for $100 before any of the other businesses had been contacted. The committee also discussed holding a fundraiser so that individuals in the community could also contribute to the reward. When contacted, Marian Coleman, owner of Kindred Spirits, said she would "consider it an honor" if the HOBOs wanted to sponsor a fundraiser at her business location on Richmond. HOBO has been organized for about a year. "We have tried to upclass our organization. We wanted to work together rather than fight with each other," Pierce said. About 30 clubs are involved with the organization. Pierce pointed out that during recent months the group ha_> had a bigger turnout. "I am sure Marion's death had some effect on the turnout we had last week since we would be talking about a reward fund," he added. "We have not been hearing enough about the muggings and knifings in the community," Pierce said. "Publications and bar owners may be afraid of scaring off customers. To protect the customers we've got to warn them," he concluded. Any business, organization or individual who would like to contribute to the Marion Pantzer Reward Fund can contact Pierce at the Brazos River Bottom, 2400 Brazos. STEVE D. MARTINEZ, MD.
