AUSTIN, Texas — University of Texas at Austin Police Chief David Carter stated the suspect in Monday afternoon’s stabbing attacks, Kendrex J. White, “obviously” had mental issues of some description. Chief Carter did not elaborate on the mental issues except to say that suspect White had been involuntarily committed recently in another city. In documents obtained by Austin TV News KXAN, suspect White claims no memory of the attacks.
The fourth stabbing victim is apparently still in hospital as of this writing.
A review of suspect White’s twitter feed from the hours and days before the stabbing revealed several Bible quotes, some from the New Testament. He last tweet before the stabbings was one word followed by ’emojis’ of religious symbols. Suspect White wrote “Yahushua” followed by an apparently Christian cross and the shape of an apparently Jewish six pointed star.
One could look at the word “Yahushua” and associate it with “Yeshua HaMoshiach” and the Sacred Name movement. One further click on google reveals several pages of references to a ‘Yahushua the Black Messiah.’ So, this writer is going to suggest that the correct reference could be ‘Yahushua the Black Messiah.’
One internet observer, cited below, also screen grabbed some ‘Snapchat’ images from midday on 1 May 2017 that appear to be suspect White wearing a shawl white in color with blue Hebrew characters and blue stripes. We’re still working on corroborating images for those cited at Heavy.com. Photos and videos of suspect White being handcuffed by police, which are quite numerous, show that he could be wearing a grey or pale shawl with no apparent stripes of any color over a tan shirt and a multicolored bandanna. None of the photos of the arrest found so far show an angle clear enough to positively identify suspect White’s clothing beyond his tan shirt and multicolored bandanna.
Only psychiatrists who interview suspect White can actually determine what was in his mind and the veracity of claims he doesn’t recall walking slowly and calmly, stabbing men chosen apparently at random on the afternoon of 1 May 2017.
