Beeville teens held in slaying

Second woman was badly hurt in attack

By DAN PARKER
Staff Writer
Two Beeville teen-agers were arrested Tuesday in connection with an attack in January that left one Beeville woman dead and another severely injured, officials said.
   The men, a 17-year-old and a 19-year-old, were booked at Bee County Jail about 4:30 p.m., said Sheriff Robert Horn.
   The teen-agers were arrested on warrants in connection with the slaying of Sue Lynn Reynolds and the beating of her roommate, Virginia Anne Knapp, Horn said.
   Last week, a dozen FBI agents converged on Beeville to investigate the slaying. Bureau officials learned the slaying was possibly committed because Reynolds' brother is an FBI agent, bureau spokesman Brian Loader has said.
   Details on the arrests and possible motives were not available Tuesday. An FBI agent confirmed that arrests were made, but he and other agents referred questions to Beeville Police Chief Joe Salinas.
   Salinas could not be reached for comment.
   Sue Lynn Reynolds' father, D.C. Reynolds, said he was grateful to the FBI and that he was pleased at the prospect that the arrests might bring justice.
   The arrests are "kind of a climax, but we're still the losers, regardless of what happens," Reynolds said. "There's nothing that's ever going to bring our Sue back."
   The attack occurred at about 2 a.m. Jan. 16 in front of the women's one-story wood-frame house at 1305 N. Buchanan St.
   Sue Lynn Reynolds and Virginia Knapp were arriving home from work when they were attacked and beaten, police said.
   Sue Lynn Reynolds died in a hospital the day after the attack. Knapp suffered a collapsed lung, broken elbow, fractured wrist and severe cuts and bruises. She was hospitalized for a week.
   The attack shocked residents in Beeville, where there had not been a homicide since 1996.
   Beeville police said it appeared the women interrupted a burglary. Two televisions, a videocassette recorder and a microwave oven were among property stolen from the house.
   The FBI has not discounted burglary as the motive, but officials with the agency have said they believe the attack could have been motivated by the fact that Reynolds' brother is an FBI agent. FBI officials have declined to say what led them to believe that.
