Thoughts? Again thanks to Newslibrary for keeping a copy of the 2001 news report from the Houston Chronicle. This one was very short so I just had to copy and paste the article without having to pay access the entire piece.
According to the Harris County District Clerk's website records, this case hasn't gone to trial yet, the only criminal record for Nicolas was a 1983 arrest for driving while intoxicated. I imagine he likely fled to his native Mexico and there's a good chance he's still alive at 76-years of age.
