20-year grudge behind slaying of former Bush doctor: USA police

Pappas the suspect in the killing of cardiologist Dr. Mark Hausknecht

Referring to the cardiologist who was shot three times while riding his bicycle along a street in the Texas Medical Center, Acevedo said "We've said that we believed he was targeted and indeed he was".

Pappas cracked the door open and peeked out, then opened the door wider.

Acevedo asked anyone who knows the whereabouts of Pappas to call 911 immediately but not to try to deal with him by themselves, considering him armed and unsafe as well as suicidal. Investigators reportedly found evidence at the home that appears to link him to the doctor's killing.

Police believe Pappas was acting in revenge for the death of his mother Julia who died on Hausknecht's operating in April 1997 at the age of 90.

Bush and his cardiologist appeared together at a news conference in 2000, after Hausknecht treated him for an irregular heartbeat.

The suspect's mother was a patient of Hausknecht's who died during surgery decades ago, according to Houston Police.

"This man is risky, this man is capable, this man has some skills (with firearms)", he said. They said many knew Pappas as "Joey", and as a quiet, nice man who mostly kept to himself.

Dozens Of Salads And Wraps May Contain A Fecal Parasite, USDA Warns
The FDA is advising these products to be thrown away or returned to where they were purchased out of precaution. The salads and wraps were sold at popular stores such as Trader Joe's, Walgreen's, and Kroger .

"This man is unsafe, this man is capable, this man has some skills (with firearms)", he said.

The Harris County District's Attorney's Office issued a murder warrant for Pappas' arrest Wednesday. On Tuesday, someone said they recognized the suspect in surveillance video released a day before.

While Acevedo said those reports were unconfirmed, "we do have some indication that many many many years ago he might have been a constable". Phone calls to Pappas went straight to voicemail.

That phone number is linked to recent listings on a firearms auction website for several guns, ammunition, tactical vests and ballistic plates for auto doors.

Investigative reporter Jeremy Rogalski uncovered the online ads on national firearms marketplace sites and the Houston Greensheet. A spokesman for Houston police declined to comment on the ads. In addition to his wife, a retired emergency room physician, Hausknecht is survived by two adult sons, Matthew and Paul.

Three days after the July 20 attack on Dr. Mark Hausknecht in Houston, Jeanette Spencer received notification in the mail indicating that the home of family friend Joseph James Pappas had been deeded to her.

"He was very gentle, he was very caring, he offered a lot to people in need", Dr. Neal Kleiman said.
