Busy Lab Means Long Wait for Answers in Shooting of Teen Couple

It’s been nearly three months since two teenage girls were shot at Violet Andrews Park in Portland, Tex. Mollie Olgin, 19, died at the scene; her girlfriend, 18-year-old Mary Kristene Chapa survived and helped police develop a sketch of the shooter. The sketch generated an influx of leads, police have sent a batch of DNA samples from persons of interest to a forensics lab for testing. The lab, however, is backed up, and it’s unclear when the results will be ready.
