Four days after Thompson’s death, police said they identified Andre Stefan Buggs, 58, as the suspect for the murder and considered him “armed and dangerous.”
On July 11, Buggs turned himself in. Police noted he and the victim knew each other but they did not disclose further details about the crime, according to KXAS-TV.
“Suspect Buggs was transported to the Homicide Unit, where detectives interviewed him,” law enforcement officials said. “The suspect invoked his right to an attorney, and he was transported to the Dallas County Jail where he was charged with murder.”
His bond was set at $550,000.
