Texas police sergeant killed by wanted suspect fleeing traffic stop

NASSAU BAY, Texas — A Texas police sergeant was killed when a man wanted on a domestic violence warrant fled from a traffic stop and struck her with his vehicle, police said.

The search continued early Wednesday for the man, who police said likely still has one handcuff attached to his wrist. Police have not released his name.

Nassau Bay police Sgt. Kaila Sullivan was assisting in a traffic stop Tuesday night at an apartment complex when police discovered the driver had an outstanding warrant for assault on a family member, Nassau Bay Police Chief Tim Cromie said.

The driver escaped the officers then drove off in his vehicle, striking Sullivan, who later died at a hospital, Cromie said. The vehicle was discovered abandoned as the suspect eluded capture.

Sullivan, 43, was approaching her 16-year anniversary with the Nassau Bay Police Department and had worked on the night shift, Cromie said, calling her “a consummate professional in police work.”

“She was a police officer at heart. She came to work every day, she enjoyed the job,” he said. “Her blood ran blue. She was a police officer’s police officer.”

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is leading the search for the suspect. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Sullivan’s death was “another grim reminder” of how dangerous police work can be, noting that the community is still mourning the Saturday death of an Houston Sargent, and the September Shooting of an Harris County Deputy.

At the time of this report deputies in southeast Houston are engaged in a standoff at the home of the suspect’s mother. Law enforcement authorities believe the wanted man is inside the home, refusing to surrender. SWAT has the home surrounded and investigators are working on a search warrant for the residence.

Alice Marie Johnson, Lisa’s mother, has stated in the past that she became worried about her when she was not answering her phone and they made the decision to drive from Starks Louisiana to check on her welfare. Upon arrival they could not locate Lisa and nothing in her residence appeared out of the ordinary, her vehicle was in the driveway and her dog was running loose in the yard. Mrs. Johnson stated that this was very odd and she filed a missing persons report.

In the past 12 years this investigation has included searches in and around the area Lisa Chandler resided, numerous interviews with people who knew Lisa and wide spread media coverage within the past year. Unfortunately, even with all that nothing of evidentiary value has brought investigators any closer to finding Lisa Chandler or what happened on September 23rd, 2007.

Sheriff Meeks stated: “I feel without a doubt that someone in or around Wolfe City knows something about Lisa Chandler. We have learned that a lot of her known associates were in that area at the time she disappeared and some of them people may still live here. Please, if you have any information contact Sgt. Jeff Haines with the Sheriff’s Office who is actively investigating this case”.
