Update on Incident at 3706 Millbridge
July 21, 2006 -- Houston police
homicide investigators today (July 21) announced the arrest of
one suspect and identity of a second suspect wanted in the murders
of four young people in a residence at 3706 Millbridge in 2003.
A Crime Stoppers tip within the past week has helped lead to the
identifications of the two suspects in this case. Christine
Marie Paolilla (w/f, DOB 3-31-86) was arrested in San Antonio
on Wednesday (July 19) and brought back to Houston where she will
be transported to the Harris County Jail. The second suspect,
Christopher Lee Snider (w/m,
DOB 11-10-84) of Crosby, Texas, is still wanted at this time and
is believed to be in the Greenville, South Carolina area. Both
suspects are charged with capital murder in the 351st State District
Over the past three years, homicide investigators
have pursued thousands of leads in the murders of Tiffany Rowell,
18, Marcus Precella, 19, Rachel Koloroutis, 18, and Adelbert Sanchez,
21. The four were found fatally shot in a home about 3:30 p.m.
on July 18, 2003. Composite sketches of a male and female seen
at the home before the murders were also distributed to the media
in June of 2004 in hopes of developing leads to their identities.
Within the last week, investigators developed
information that Paolilla was in San Antonio and that Snider was
possibly in Louisville, Kentucky. Homicide investigators went
to both cities to search for the suspects. With help from the
San Antonio Police Department, investigators located Paolillo
in a hotel room and took her into custody without incident. Investigators
were not able to locate Snider in Kentucky, but learned he fled
to Greenville, South Carolina. HPD investigators are enroute there
to work with Greenville PD investigators in hopes of finding Snider.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of
suspect Christopher Snider is urged to contact the HPD Homicide
Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
