.Hank Johnson was brutally beaten in Hearne, Texas on July 10, 2008. Hank died as a result of his injuries. His murder remained unsolved in the Capital Murder case part due to the suspected improper handling of the case by District Attorney John Paschall.
I request the removal of DA John Paschall from all involvement in the Hank Johnson murder case due to a conflict of interest and prejudice..
Paschall has compromised the conviction of the party or parties responsible for the crime which may include Billy Blackburn, John Paschall’s brother-in-law. Blackburn is a potential witness and/or person of interest. Paschall also failed to follow proper interrogation protocol and questioned Blackburn with no one else present.
Paschall was recorded threatening the lead Detective Steve Stokley, who was later demoted and transferred after his Johnson murder case files disappeared. In addition, at least one witness, Harry Monson, was murdered October 25, 2008, along with Chandell Lewis who had dated Paschall’s daughter.
Please remove and investigate DA John Paschall.
