Friday night DPS Troopers were on Interstate 45 northbound running radar near Rayford Road. Just before 2:30 a.m. two motorcycles passed them at 86 mph. The Trooper sped up behind them not yet activating his emergency lights and called ahead to the other Trooper to let him know there were two motorcycles heading his way. As they crossed SH 242 they activated their emergency lights.
A female driving one of the motorcycles stopped. The second motorcycle sped up and by the time he exited FM 1488 he was indicating 130 mph on the Troopers radar. Troopers were able to stay in the pursuit and still over 100 mph the motorcycle who had gone back onto the freeway exited the freeway at south loop 336 and continued north on Frazier.
At Gladstell the driver turned eastbound. By the time the Trooper was able to make the turn then motorcycle appeared to have gone around a tight curve. The Trooper lost the motorcycle.
The female who did stop stated she was headed in the area of Albert Moorehead and Bert Brown areas off FM 1314.
As Troopers started searching streets in Conroe, Montgomery County dispatchers dispatched Sheriff patrol cars to the Albert Moorehead Road area to locate the motorcycle.
Then at 6:30 p.m. a reader of the Montgomery County Police Reporter contacted us and asked permission to post a photo of a man who was missing. After further discussion it was learned that they had been trying to call his phone all night with no response. The reader then gave a partial description of the motorcycle with a license number.
MCPR immediately contacted DPS as the motorcycle described matched the motorcycle involved in the pursuit seventeen hours earlier.
DPS Troopers immediately returned to the area that the motorcycle was lost in the pursuit and started a slow meticulous search. A short time later one of the Troopers spotted a part of a motorcycle in the front yard of a residence on Gladstell just east of Frazier. That is when the Trooper spotted a slight impression of tire tracks going into a heavy wooded area.
After further investigation the Troopers found the motorcycle on the opposite side of a ravine approximately sixty feet into the woods. The driver identified as Kristopher Michael Wolf, 24, of Conroe, was deceased.
MCHD responded to the scene and Conroe Fire Department responded to cut a trail into the woods.
Judge Spikes ordered Eichenhorst Funeral Directors to transport Wolf to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.
