Suspect Arrested 23 Years After Murder at 12933 Emporia

July 9, 2008 - Charges have been filed against a female suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of a man at 12933 Emporia on September 22, 1985.

The suspect, Carolyn Sue Krizan-Wilson (w/f, DOB: 12/21/41) is charged with murder in the 177th State District Court. She is accused in the killing of her husband, Roy McCaleb, 51, of Houston. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

HPD Homicide Division Cold Case Unit Sergeant M.K. Peters reported:

Krizan-Wilson alleged that a suspect, who had sexually assaulted her as she was driving the week prior to the shooting, appeared in her home in the mid-evening on September 22, and again attacked her. During the attack, Krizan-Wilson alleged her attacker obtained a gun she had in her room for her own protection. After the suspect assaulted Krizan-Wilson, she said he ordered her to remain in her room as he fled the residence. Krizan-Wilson alleged she heard a gunshot, left her bedroom, and bumped into her attacker in the hallway of the residence. At that point, the attacker dropped the gun, which Krizan-Wilson then picked up, and fired twice at the suspect as she chased him out the door.

Mr. McCaleb was found shot inside the residence. At the time of the incident, the case was extensively investigated but no charges were accepted by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The case was reviewed and again presented to the Harris County DA’s Office and charges were accepted on Tuesday (July 8).

Carolyn Sue Krizan-Wilson was arrested on Tuesday in the 15400 block of Moore Lane in Montgomery, Texas.

At 1:30 p.m. TODAY (July 9), Sgt. M. Peters with the HPD Cold Case Unit will be available to discuss details regarding the arrest of Krizan-Wilson in the 1st floor media briefing room at 1200 Travis, HPD Headquarters.
