According to Kyle Police Chief JeffBamett, the de- partment is making steady progress on the case. "We work on that (case) almost daily," Barnett said. "Weekly we are mak- ing progress or some step forward." According to Barnett, the department is await- ing forensic test results stemming from items that were procured during the initial investigation. But Barnett said the laboratory is typically a "year behind" When it comes to testing. "We asked them to consider this case with urgency because we have someone who is a mur- derer that is on,the loose," Barnett said. In June 2015, KPD was dispatched to a home along Sledge Street on a call from an out-of-town relative for a welfare call. They called because they had not heard from the occupants of the home for several days. Authorities found the bodies of Tina Combs, 44, of Arlington and Jimmy Wright, 45, of Kyle, inside of the home. According to autopsy reports conducted on Wright and Combs, the manner of death for both was homicide. The cause of death in Combs' death was an incised wound and gunshot wound, while the cause of death in Wrigl 's death was a gunshot wound.

Of the 96 projects identified, only ten were listed as the city's responsibility, which totals over $288 million. The entire list of projects under the proposed TMP is $2.035 billion. During the Jan. 5 city council meeting, council member David Wilson said the city should "manage the connection" with Hays County and CAMPO to be- come regional partners in funding the projects, "We should engage in conversation that would allow for CAMPO and the county to assist us in a financial way," W'flson said. "It's what level should our city council take with CAMPO and the county in making sure this plan isn't just a pretty document." Other city priorities, such as drainage and wastewater improvements, will also be factored in the funding discussions. "It's howwe are going to fund that," Barba said. "We have issues with water and wastewater and all of the other things going on. How do we fund these things?"

According to the re- port, Briggs arrived at the couple's residence first and talked to Brittany. She was heading to her parents' residence after she leamed Jesse no longer wanted her to stay there. The officer followed her to the home as a passing car made her nervous. Once Briggs arrived Boardman and his neigh- bor, Cutler, met him. The report further ex- plained Boardman said he was agitated because Jesse was abusive to Brittany. Ratliff said he obtained five affidavits stating Board- man threatened Jesse's life but could not get the incident's recording. "Gary Cutler is a witness to a crime in this county that anyone would have been arrested for," Ratliff said. "That's not the way a sheriff or an internal affairs officer should conduct business." Ratliff said the officer's submitted report was denied three times before it was taken as an informa- tion only report. "Gary Cutler conspired with others in his depart- ment to see that this case stopped right there," Ratliff said. "He has violated the public trust, because this is indisputable." According to the Hays Free Press archives, Cutler brought allegations against Ratliff in 2010 saying Ratliff assaulted his wife in 1988. Ratliff served as Hays County Sheriff from 2008- 2010 after Sheriff Allen Bridges passed away. He ran as a Democrat in 2010 and is now running as a Republican.
