A 30-Year-Old Texas Woman Turns Herself In

A Texas woman has been charged with murder after she fatally shot her neighbour for supposedly stealing her bouncy house.

Nora Lee Lopez, 30, turned herself into the Austin Police Department on Friday after police issued a warrant for her arrest for the shooting of her 52-year-old neighbour James Traylor.

APD and Austin-Travis County EMS were summoned to the scene last Monday at 8.10 am after multiple bullets were discharged, and where officials found a black man, later identified as James Traylor, with multiple gunshot wounds at the scene and they rushed him to Dell Seton Medical Centre at the University of Texas where he died of his wounds.

The Travis County Medical Examiner’s office carried out a post-mortem and established James Traylor’s cause of death as a homicide from multiple gunshots.

An eyewitness told police that Nora Lee Lopez got into a dispute over the alleged robbery of a bouncy house before she shot him multiple times and then fled the scene.

An arrest warrant for first-degree murder was issued for Nora Lee Lopez until she finally turned herself in, and a neighbour told a KXAN that the shots sounded like a bang and that he stayed in his house nearby and heard six shots.

He said that it’s a rough neighbourhood.

Another neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, was also not surprised that a shooting occurred in the rough neighbourhood, and he said that there were children around when Nora Lee Lopez fired the shots.

James Traylor’s death was Austin’s 77th homicide of 2021.

According to the Wall Street Journal, crimes in the city jumped 64 per cent from the first six months in 2019 to the same period in 2020, and the increase of crimes follows a national trend as homicides by 30 per cent around the country, the largest single-year increase the FBI has recorded since it started tracking crimes back in the 1960s.

And this was all over a bouncy house, it really does say something about some people, but then this appears to be the way they settle things in the US with most people armed and thinking that they have the power to fire at anyone they feel like, and this is evidence that people are rooting, tooting guns and armed and ready to pull the trigger, and to experience that rush of power and snuff out a life and in this case for the most bizarre and ridiculous of reasons, they feel perfectly justified in what they’ve done.

A stolen bouncy house is not punishable by death and this is a blatant disregard for human life, and then they pop off to church to worship Jesus. Perhaps they should form a fan club for murdering someone because they stole a bouncy house, but then you’d have to be a bit of a nut job.

The eyewitness said it was a rough neighbourhood, you think? It’s not a law-abiding one, that’s for sure, and you know you’re in the hood when the bouncy house is bigger and looks better than your house, and if you’re wondering why the lady didn’t just call the police. In Austin, thanks to the understaffing of police, unless you have a life or death situation currently in progress, the police won’t show up. They’ll just show up after the person’s death, but stealing doesn’t equal death, and I wonder how much the bouncy house was worth because Nora Lee Lopez clearly thought it was worth a life.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
