Houston Police Seek Suspect After Man Decapitated at Garage [UPDATED]

Passersby directed Houston police officers on patrol to a grisly discovery just before 9 p.m. Thursday — a decapitated man inside a southeast Houston auto parts store. The suspected killer, police said in a statement, remains at large.

Police say they believe Raymond Jackson, 62, killed Enayatolah Khorsand, 58, at 9100 Mykawa. Mykawa Auto Parts is located at the address and Khorsand is listed as president of the business on records filed with the Texas Secretary of State. Witnesses told the authorities that Jackson was a "regular visitor" to the business.

Jackson is charged with murder in the 184th State District Court, police said. His criminal history in Harris County includes three convictions for trespassing, in 1986, 2007 and 2013.

Police urge anyone with information on Jackson's location to call the Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.


UPDATE August 19, 1:20 p.m.: Houston police have arrested Jackson, HPD spokesman Victor Senties said.
