ABILENE (January 26, 2010)-West Texas police were investigating a brutal murder-suicide where minister was found stabbed to death.
Abilene Police say a Transsexual male, who had undergone gender modification surgery to become a female, stabbed his pastor to death before he hanged himself.
Parishioners found the body of Abilene Unity Church of Christianity pastor Karen Lee Johnson, 61, dead Saturday of multiple stab wounds, police say.
Johnson’s body was found in the home of Renata Antoinette Monet, who was also found nearby dead.
Abilene Police Sgt. Lynn Beard says Johnson had gone to Monet’s home Friday afternoon to offer counseling.
Investigators believe Monet attacked the minister as soon as she entered the home, and then hanged herself.
Monet is formally known as Bobby Allan La'Loge who changed his name exactly a year before the slaying.
