Does Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Believe He Has 666 Authority to Persecute DNA Hank Skinner ?
01 Oct 2013
Will Prayers of Deliverance From All of Us For Texan Greg Abbott,Free Hank Skinner ?

Who in Texas believes it's ok for Attorney General Greg Abbott and his demonic posse to continue misleading everyone about Hank Skinner's DNA crime scene tests ?
We find it very revealing that Texas Attorney Greg Abbott never found the interest at all for an investigation into the vanishing DNA Hank Skinner exoneration evidence?

Obvious now to most,Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott was not interested in finding out the truth about these 3 murders enough to allow proper Hank Skinner DNA tests for the last 10 years

After the U.S. Supreme Court stopped Greg Abbott's execution of Hank Skinner,crucial DNA exoneration evidence that could free innocent Hank Skinner from 20 years in a Texas prison vanished !

Texas State Attorney General Greg Abbott is now running for Texas Governor with a mind and soul that needs deliverance ?

The sick demonic Texan posse that Greg Abbott continues to direct to persecute Mr Hank Skinner, needs prayers from all Americans to free them from Satan's world..

DNA testing further implicates convicted murderer Henry "Hank" Skinner for the crime, according to the Texas Attorney General.

Pronews 7 obtained the documents on Wednesday afternoon which were filed in a Gray County State District Court.

Skinner was convicted in 1995 for the 1993 Pampa murders of Twila Busby, his live-in girlfriend and her two grown sons. The murder happened on New Year's Eve.

Initial DNA testing in 1995 implicated Skinner by showing that he was at the crime scene.

The new DNA results showed Skinner's blood in the back bedrooms of the home where the murder happened.

Skinner's DNA, according to the Attorney General's advisory, was also found on the handle of a bloody knife taken from the front porch of the home. At least one other contributor's DNA was also on the knife, according to the Attorney General.

While Skinner has not contested that he was at the crime scene, he maintained his innocence. He said he was unconscious and intoxicated on the couch at the time of the murders.

Skinner's attorney said the results should not have been released since the testing is still in progress.

"We find it troubling that the Attorney General's Office has seen fit to release partial results of the DNA testing and submit its 'advisory' to the court while the DNA testing is still in progress," said Rob Owen, attorney for Hank Skinner. "The partial results which have been produced by the initial round of DNA testing show that at least one person other than Hank Skinner and the victims may have been present in the house on the night the murders took place, and may have had contact with one of the weapons used in the killings."

Skinner was sentenced to the death penalty. He once came within one hour of being executed. Several times, the execution was postponed.

Skinner had contended that new DNA testing would show that he was innocent. Starting in 2000, he pleaded for more DNA testing.

"We have requested additional DNA testing that could improve the quality of the unknown DNA profile from the carpet sample, to allow authorities to submit it to CODIS, the national law enforcement DNA database, to search for matches there," Owen said. "We have also requested additional DNA testing of the stains from the knife, likewise hoping to develop further the DNA profile of the third contributor."
