Mom wants answers one year after Waco biker melee: 'Who killed my son?'

WACO - Rain or shine, Yvonne Reeves visits the makeshift shrine and sits, sometimes for hours, a few feet from where her son drew his last breaths as he was shot in the back of the head.

 

His nickname, "Chain," is painted on the asphalt parking lot.

His 10-year-old son traced an outline of his hand on the ground as if to wave goodbye.

"I don't know why I come here," Reeves said recently, as the wind caught her long gray hair. "I've been telling myself I don't want to come here, but I still come."

She combs through the rolling papers, wooden cross and other offerings to the dead left at the shrine, and calls Waco police detectives regularly with a message.

DA calls comments from Twin Peaks attorney "sadly inaccurate"

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Houston attorney says 39 Twin Peaks bikers, including two he represents, have been released from their bond obligations with no charges pending - but prosecutors called his claims "sadly inaccurate". 

Houston Attorney Paul Looney said in a press release the extended term of the McLennan County grand jury expired Thursday night at midnight and the prosecutions against those bikers are "terminated by the operation of law and their cases are dismissed."

District Attorney Abel Reyna disagreed late Thursday afternoon, releasing a statement that said, "We have not filed any dismissals in any of the remaining Twin Peaks cases.  Furthermore, any McLennan County Grand Jury can hear evidence on this matter and decide to issue additional indictments."

"This is an ongoing, continuing criminal investigation," he added.

Two additional Twin Peaks bikers named in sealed indictments arrested

Two more of the six bikers who were named in sealed indictments last week were arrested on charges of engaging in criminal activity Wednesday, unsealing the indictments.

Richard Dewayne Smith, 39, and Richard Clarence Lockhart, 46, were each arrested on a first-degree felony engaging in organized criminal activity charge for their alleged role in the May 17 biker shootout at Twin Peaks. Both men were subsquently released from custody by Wednesday afternoon after each posted a $250,000 surety bond.

Officials report that Smith is a member of the Bandidos motorcycle club and Lockhart is a member of the Compañeros motorcycle club — a support group of the Bandidos. Both men were in two of six sealed indictments that were returned by a McLennan County grand jury last week. The grand jury returned a total of 48 indictments last week, but sealed six for suspects who had not previously been arrested.

Bandidos leader fighting federal charges and outlaw reputation

Motorcycle club is about brotherhood, not crime, former president says

Jeff Pike makes his way through the crowd with a cup of Crown Royal whiskey and water in his hand and dark sunglasses framing his gray crew cut.

The leader of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club wears a dark denim vest adorned with patches that say things such as "Expect No Mercy," but he smiles at everyone.

 

"How ya doing, brother?" Pike asks as he stops for another hug. "Good to see you. Good to see everybody."

 

At a 50th anniversary gathering of Bandidos, on a recent Saturday afternoon along the banks of the San Jacinto River, one thing was clear: Among these people, Pike is a rock star, a father figure, a man who inspires and awes.

"I love him to death," said someone known as "Baytown Rob." "He gives me the chills. A great, great man."
