According to the Star Telegram and police reports, a homicide allegedly occurred in the garage of a house in the 3900 block of Birchman on May 25. Even though neighbors did not report hearing any gunfire, Walter “James” Anders, a homeless man, is believed to have been shot there by George Thurston who was living there with his girlfriend. Anders’ body was discovered on May 30 in a wooded area near Windsor Place and Eighth Avenue. Thurston was arrested on June 20 and charged with murder. He is currently in Tarrant County jail with bail set at $250,000.

Arlington Heights Neighborhood Patrol Officer Brad Denson believes this is an “isolated incident” and is not cause for alarm. Further, Officer Denson does not attribute any of the recent neighborhood home or car burglaries to Mr. Thurston or Mr. Anders.
