Murder Charge: The body of a Baytown Realtor has been discovered in west Chambers County, and her husband is in jail charged with murder. According to Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne, back on August 26, his office received a call regarding a welfare concern for 37-year-old Crystal McDowell. Sheriff Hawthorne reports that his detectives along with the Texas Rangers and investigators from the Texas Attorney General’s Office worked essentially around the clock on this case. Then, Saturday afternoon, Crystal McDowell’s body was discovered by detectives and Texas Rangers in a wooded area in west Chambers County. Justice of the Peace Precinct 6 Larry Cryer conducted an inquest and ordered an autopsy. The woman’s husband, 44-year-old Steven Wayne McDowell, is now charged with first-degree murder. At last report, he remains in Chambers County Jail awaiting a bail hearing.
Debris Removal: Liberty County officials are working on a plan for debris removal in the unincorporated areas of the county. Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Branch said his office has been asked if residents, at their own expense, can contact a private service to remove their debris. He said the answer is yes. Mr. Branch said he has also been asked if private insurance will cover the cost. To that, the emergency management coordinator said to contact your insurance company for guidance. As of Friday, 7,612 Liberty County residents have registered with FEMA for assistance. So far, FEMA has paid out about $2.8 million to county residents impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Liberty County Commissioners will discuss debris removal at tomorrow’s meeting set to begin at 9 a.m. in the Liberty County Courthouse. As always, the public is welcome.
Football: With opening weekend of high school football flooded out across much of Southeast Texas, most area gridiron teams took to the field Friday night for the first time this year. The Liberty Panthers opened their season with a road win over the Cleveland Indians 16-13. The Nederland Bulldogs bested the Dayton Broncos 26-14. In other action, it was Hardin over Huntington 37-12 while Hull-Daisetta topped West Hardin 24-12. Barbers Hill rolled past Friendswood 45-28. Splendora shut out Tarkington 28-0. East Chambers blanked Kirbyville 28-0, and Anahuac squeaked past Danbury 23-20.
