"He's unsafe, he's capable and if you spot him please call 911", Acevedo said, adding that Pappas appeared suicidal based on text messages he had sent and the police investigation.
Acevedo told reporters that evidence indicated Pappas put a lot of planning into the alleged crime.
'It appears that this may be a 20-year-old grudge, ' he added. "There was text that he sent to someone that said he was going to kill himself", Acevedo said. Channel 2 Investigates learned Julia Pappas died of natural causes on April 2, 1997, due to cardiovascular atherosclerotic disease, according to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
A close-up surveillance image showed the suspect wearing a blue, short-sleeve polo shirt, a khaki or white cap, khaki shorts and an olive-green backpack, police said. Police believe that he might be suicidal, Acevedo said.
"While Houstonians can take comfort in the fact that we believe we know the identity of the suspected shooter, Joseph J. Pappas, he has not yet been located", Turner said in a statement.
