Beaumont woman killed in early morning attack

On Saturday, April 2, at about 4 a.m., Beaumont police officers were dispatched to the 4100 block of Jeanette in reference to a stabbing.

Upon arrival, officers found Loretta Lynn Harris,  a 43-year-old black female, unresponsive. She had a stab wound to the chest and was transported by EMS to Christus St Elizabeth Hospital. She was pronounced deceased at the hospital around 4:45 a.m. 

An arrest warrant was issued for the suspect, Roy James Samuel, for Harris's murder, with a $100,000.00 bond. He turned himself into authorities later that day claiming jealousy was the reason for the brutal attack.
