A VIDEO OF THE SUSPECT HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED BY HARRIS COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE. IT SHOWS THE MALE DROPPING THE PT CRUISER AND THEN WALKING THROUGH THE MALL. WE WILL BE POSTING IT SHORTLY
The memorial outside Pamela Johnson’s home has grown as a break in the case is helping investigators move forward.
Johnson’s missing PT Cruiser was found at Willowbrook Mall on Sunday morning. It had been missing from her home in the 12400 block of Bent Pine Drive.
Her younger sister, Tresa Wilkins, told ABC13 that Johnson loved people and never let her disability of being mostly deaf stop her from pursuing a job and providing for herself.
Johnson’s husband died a few years ago. She was always thinking of others and giving small gifts to show her love, Wilkins said.
“It made you know she was thinking specifically of you. It was very meaningful. That’s another reason why this…if the point of this whole thing was a robbery attempt gone sour or something, I don’t know. They must not have known her because they would know she didn’t have expensive tastes. She didn’t have expensive things. She led a very frugal, simple life. She wanted to pay her own way and not have debt,” Wilkins said.
Johnson’s co-workers from Kroger are planning a vigil. Her family will hold a memorial service once authorities are done with their investigation.
