Alberto Morales Still on the Loose, Added to Texas’ Most Wanted List

A Miami man who stabbed a police officer in Grapevine Monday night is still on the loose, after escaping from police custody in a Walmart parking lot. Alberto Morales was en route to Las Vegas, where he was 30 years to life in prison for sexual assault.

Grapevine-Colleyville schools are on a “soft lockdown,” meaning students will still attend class at the regular time but exterior doors will remain locked. “Regular school classes and activities will continue as normal inside the schools and all athletic, recess and physical education activities will continue as usual,” reads a statement from the district. “We remain on alert and continue working closely with police. We will provide updates if any changes to our procedures are necessary.”

Morales was added yesterday to Texas’ Most Wanted Fugitives list, and a $10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his arrest. Quick note: the list says he weighs 145 pounds, when he actually weighs 175 pounds. Life on the run adds a few dozen pounds, I guess.

    The Boogeyman is dead.
    “Alberto Morales” killed near Lake Grapevine early Saturday. (Assuming an imaginary person can be killed.)
    Details are still vague as they try to write a plausible ending and tie up any loose ends. Walmart surveillance footage of “Morales” initial “escape” definitely needs a re-edit.
    But, all in all, a compelling work of meta-fiction. Some people actually believe this story was real.
