This Sunday, October 4, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. the Discovery Channel will be airing the program called, “On The Case”, with Paula Zahn focusing on victims in murder cases.
One of the cases will be the murder of Beaumont Police Officer, Paul Hulsey on March 22, 1988. This case led officers to locate and capture the serial murderer later that evening. He was tried, convicted and sentences to death in the next two years. His execution was carried out in Texas on December 9, 1997.
While many of us (Beaumont Police Officers) were not part of the police department at that time, we feel the sacrifices officer Hulsey made. Many of the detectives/investigators at the time have moved on, but still remember the incident as if it occurred yesterday.
Although the show will display the murderer and the murders he committed over several years, we will always remember those victims and the ultimate sacrifices made by law enforcement to protect the future.
