Arrow HPD Homicide Cold Case call today..

I want to back up here a while back I made a post about Brother Charlie’s 18 year anniversary.
He was murdered in 2003.. see links below from Houston Chronicle and the 10 year anniversary from Houston 2 news..

Well after posting the links I received a inbox from TBH’s Chew!
He said Bro. Bill I’m not sure anything will happen but I’m going to email the Cold case unit and see if we can stir the pot..
And a few days later I spoke to a very kind lady in the department and she said we are going to look into it for you Mr Kato.

Today around 1:00 I had a missed call and a voice mail from a number I didn’t recognize and I played it,
Detective Louhon with HPD cold case calling on the case of Charlie Kato
With tears flowing I called Louhon and he introduced himself again and told me that he had been assigned to Charlie’s case. He told me that the technology they have today is so much far advanced than 2003
And that he was going to use everything available to him to help shed some light upon the case..
I am very humbled and touched,
I know CHEW probably doesn’t want a shout out.. but here it is!!
I will be meeting the detectives next week to go over some questions he has..
Love ya Chew!! And TBH!!

Bill even though we've never met in person, I've always admired your faith. You and Saltwater Slick are men that I've often thought of in my own life when I fail and question God's decisions in my life.
In the past when I've read about your brother, I've wondered if my faith would be strong enough to handle things the way you have. I'll be praying for God to lead the investigators to the truth so that you and you're family can finally have some closure.

Small World. I knew your brother, and I remember hearing about his murder a few years after I joined the department. I graduated from Aldine and remember Charlie really well. He kept to himself and never bothered anyone but he was always hard at work keeping the school clean. That really brought back some memories because I haven't thought of him in years. I never opted to patrol the Aldine area because thats where I grew up but it was pretty rough out there. I hope you can get some closure on your brothers case.

Great to hear and prayers for closure. I remember you telling me your and your brother's story well when I sold or bought something from you several years back.

It's true, technology has revitalized the cold case market. My 83 year old father got a call from Abilene PD cold case a couple months back picking his brain on a case from the late 80s. Now my Dad retired in 97 after a 30 year detective career. He is in cognitive decline and could not help much but he sure was tickled to talk shop for a while with the young detective.

Brother Bill, Prayers up for you .

I didn't realize it till now, but my Dad and sister were murdered in the same year. It is hard to imagine not know why or who did this. In our case, they had those responsible in jail very quickly. While it still didn't make much sense, it did help with some resolution.

Take care and I hope for a favorable outcome and some form of peace of mind. If you ever care to talk, send me a message.

Yep he’s a pretty good dude. Hope the case is solved soon.

I’d also like to see the case solved about the woman in Midlothian who was alone at her church.
