Dallas – New developments have emerged in the 2-year-old murder case of Dallas money courier and former Hunt County resident Phillip Washington.
The Dallas Morning News reports police now believe Washington bought a car from one of the suspects a couple months before he was killed.
Acting on a tip, authorities arrested Kenneth Wayne Rogers on March 31 on a capitol murder charge. Rogers' bond has been set at $1.5 million. Another suspect, Shannon Dewayne Sloan, has not been charged. Officers are also seeking two other suspects.
Washington was shot and then robbed while attempting to make a deposit at the State Bank & Trust on the morning of January 6, 2008.
The 50-year-old Washington was raised in Neylandville and is a graduate of Commerce High School. He also attended A&M-Commerce and once worked for the University's Police Department.
