On Thursday, August 6, 2015, at approximately 9:45 PM, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the 24000 block of FM 1485, (The FM 1485 RV Park), in New Caney, Texas, in reference to a disturbance in progress.
When units arrived at the location, they discovered a female on location with severe lacerations and injuries. The female was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced deceased. Deputies received information that an altercation occurred between a male and the injured female. The male reportedly assaulted the female with a machete and then fled the scene in a motor vehicle. Deputies were able to advise dispatch of a suspect and a suspect vehicle description, which was aired over the radio. An assisting Roman Forest Police Department Unit, that was responding, was able to locate the vehicle and stop it. The suspect in this vehicle was identified and detained.
Montgomery County Sheriff Office Major Crime Detectives, Crime Scene Investigators, and representative from the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office arrived at the scene. After an investigation, the suspect that was stopped in the vehicle, John Dee Weter, Jr., was arrested and charged with the murder of Michelle Becker, (33 year old female).
The woman’s two children ages 7 and 8 were in the home at the time of the attack.
