Former Texas A&M wide receiver to be charged with murder in Dallas
Thomas Johnson, a former Texas A&M wide receiver, has been arrested for allegedly murdering a jogger, according to NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth.
The incident happened at about 8 a.m. Monday morning, along the White Rock Creek trail in northeast Dallas.
According to the report, Johnson, 21, used “a large, edged weapon” to kill an unidentified male jogger. Police also said that Johnson admitted to the crime and even called them from a nearby area after the stabbing.
In November 2012, as a freshman, Johnson went missing for more than 48 hours before deciding to leave the team for good the following month.
In his only season with the Aggies, he caught 30 passes for 339 yards and a touchdown in 10 games.
Texas A&M released a statement regarding the incident.
