Keep Houston Press Free

Alleged TV Channel 13 Shooter Wrote of People "Exploiting Me Nude," and Other Bizarre Stuff

The woman accused of firing shots outside Channel 13 (KTRK) Thursday morning posted results of a pap smear on her Facebook page, and wrote about people "who are defaming" her.

Michelle Monique Burks, who was charged with felony deadly conduct after she allegedly fired shots into the TV station's West University offices, wrote about people attacking her character, and suspected that the "Christian Church" may have been "exploiting me nude."

Burks also writes extensively about health problems, two divorces, and prior employment at a Toshiba manufacturing plant.

She also posted a photo of hand-written plans for a "counter-terrorist" plan that she claimed was "sold to the United States Government/Homeland Security only, with an agreement of an undisclosed sale."

The most recent available comment we could find was from January 2013. One month before that, she posted images of a CPS report and wrote "Proof that my CPS case was ruled out May 2008, meaning that I am a fit mother."

She added later that "I cannot allow my daughter in my home because I'm afraid that they will exploit her naked/nude to the public and post her on websites like they have done to me. This statement is signed by Michelle Monique Burks."

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Yikes. We're just glad no one was hurt this morning.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
