From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:
A man seen in surveillance video punching a woman in the face is wanted by Dallas police in connection with a murder investigation, according to investigators.
Police found the woman, who they identified as Gina Elder, 40, after they responded to a disturbance call about 3:15 a.m. Tuesday at a Super 7 Inn in the 4200 block of Independence Drive, a news release said.
Elder was found unresponsive in the motel parking lot and later pronounced dead, according to police.
Video surveillance showed Elder being punched in the face by the suspect, who was later identified as Leonard Jerome Sowell, 36. Sowell, who is now wanted on a murder charge in her death, left the area on foot before officers arrived.
Homicide investigators responded to the motel, along with officials with the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office.
Police released two videos. The second video released by Dallas police can be accessed through their blog.
Dallas police are asking anyone with information on the location of Leonard Sowell to call 911.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Jeffrey Loeb with the Dallas Police Department Homicide Unit at 214-671-3702, or email him at [email protected]

Thoughts? As far as I can tell, Sowell is still at large as of this posting date (June 19th, 2019). I have to admit I can't say for sure but there's been no new articles since he first became wanted in May and I can't find any murder cases against him in Dallas's online court records (a bunch of other cases against him but no murder charges). Of course if that status changes or has changed, anyone with any updates/proof-of-updates are always more than welcome to contact the website.
Also, while I couldn't find murder charges there are a laundry list of cases where in the past he's been accused of burglary of a habitation, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, theft, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
Also, Gina Elder, who this case is really about, was the girlfriend of Leonard Sowell. Another local news segment interviewed her heartbroken sister, who says she now has nothing left after having to bury her mother five years ago: www.wfaa.com/article/news/i-aint-got-nothing-left-family-of-woman-beat-to-death-wants-boyfriend-to-turn-himself-in/287-8c40de83-ed9c-4b0c-b74b-b521bc57ba73
Assuming Sowell's still out there, this is a very dangerous "alleged" suspect, and while all suspects are technically innocent until proven guilty, videos don't lie. There is video evidence of his alleged violence and he needs to be caught today before he "allegedly" harms anyone else.
