On Friday, June 22, Mollie Judith Olgin, age 19 (pictured right), and her girlfriend Mary Kristene Chapa (left), 18, were out at Violet Texas Park in South Texas, probably enjoying a romantic evening together at the park, which overlooks the Corpus Christi Bay.
Little did they know it would be their last night together.
Mollie and Mary were found unconscious at 9 a.m. the following day in a grassy area by a passer-by, both teens with gunshot wounds to the head. Mollie was pronounced dead. Mary was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she remains in serious but stable condition in the intensive care unit.
Police have recovered a bullet casing from the scene, but have no suspect, no motive, and no actual weapon. “It appears as if this was not just a random attack, but that’s something we really have to develop over time,” said Portland Police Chief Randy Wright.
Please come out to Love Park on Friday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m. to honor the young couple, and all women who have been targeted for loving other women. The vigil, organized by members of the Philly Dyke March, will feature speakers, a minute of silence, and a lighting of candles at 8:30 p.m.
The Chapa family is also without health insurance. If you’re interested in making a donation to fund her treatment and recovery, please click here.
