Suspect Arrested for 1994 Capital Murder Case

December 1, 2006 -- Charges are pending against a suspect arrested in the fatal shooting and strangulation of a female at 8010 Weir on May 25, 1994.

The suspect, Edward George McGregor (b/m, DOB 3/29/73), faces charges of capital murder in the killing of Edwina Latriss Barnum, 23, of 8010 Weir #6.

On May 25, 1994, at about 2:20 a.m., Ms. Barnum's neighbors noticed that her door had been kicked open sometime during the night. Along with apartment management, they entered the apartment and found her dead in her bedroom. Officers responded and learned she had been murdered in the early morning hours after returning home from work.

Homicide investigators had identified McGregor as a suspect in the 2006 murder of Mandy Rubin and 2005 murder of Danielle Subjects. That investigation led to the arrest of McGregor for the 1990 murder of Kim Wildman from Fort Bend County, where he was charged.

DNA evidence has now linked McGregor to the murder of Ms. Barnum. After learning of that development, homicide investigators and officers with the Missouri City Police Department arrested McGregor at his home in Missouri City this morning (Dec. 1) without incident.

Investigators continue to examine evidence from past cases to determine if any additional cases are linked to McGregor.
