Bush’s doctor’s killing may have been act of revenge

Houston police chief Art Acevedo said: "There was a lot of planning that went into this". He remains at large and is armed with several weapons, police said.

"This man is unsafe".

"We are relieved that the Houston Police Department has identified the suspect", he said.

Acevedo said Pappas had made phone calls indicating he was considering suicide.

A man suspected of killing one of former President George H.W. Bush's doctors may have been seeking revenge for his mother, who died on the doctor's operating table more than 20 years ago, authorities said Wednesday.

"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.

Joseph James Pappas is charged with capital murder.

He also said there were indications that Pappas might have worked as a constable many years ago and was familiar with the handling of firearms.

Pappas is accused in the shooting death of Dr. Mark Hausknecht to death on July 20.

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.

Police reportedly received a tip from someone who said they recognized Pappas in the surveillance video taken near the site of the shooting.

At the time of the doctor's death, former President Bush called him "a fantastic cardiologist and a good man".
