Federal grand jury indicts six in connection to 2007 Etoile slayings

By Donna McCollum - email

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Six federal indictments were announced today in connection with the 2007 deaths of two people in Etoile, a spokesperson with the U.S. Attorney's Office confirmed Monday morning.

According to previous reports, the bodies of Christie Brown and David Mitchamore were found on an Etoile road on Aug. 10, 2007.

According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, the suspects were members of the Aryan Brotherhood, a Texas prison-based gang which focuses on a criminal enterprise to include illegal activities for profit.

The indictment alleges that a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, David Clyde Mitchamore Jr., aka "Super Dave," and his girlfriend, Christie Rochelle Brown, were murdered by Charles Cameron Frazier, aka "Mojo," and Brent Nicholas Stalsby, aka "Twist," because Mitchamore failed to repay an outstanding debt he allegedly owed to Carl Richard Carver, an alleged general in the Aryan Brotherhood.   The indictment alleges that after Mitchamore was killed, Frazier and Stalsby murdered Brown because they did not want to leave any witnesses to Mitchamore's killing.  The bodies of Mitchamore and Brown were discovered in Nacogdoches County on Aug. 10, 2007.

The following individuals were taken into custody today without incident: 

  • Carl Richard Carver, aka "C.C.", 43, of Lufkin, Texas, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder and murder;
  • Charles Cameron Frazier, aka "Mojo", 28, of Nacogdoches, Texas, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of murder, two counts of carrying a firearm during a crime of violence and being a felon in possession of a firearm;
  • Brent Nicholas Stalsby, aka "Twist", 29, of Lufkin, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of murder, two counts of carrying a firearm during a crime of violence and being a felon in possession of a firearm;
  • Terry Lynn Stalsby, aka "Peaches", 28, of Lufkin, is charged with two counts of accessory after the fact;
  • April Nicole Flanagan, 30, of Lufkin, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, murder and accessory after the fact;
  • Carrie Christine Wood, 37, of Lufkin, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, and murder.

Carver, Frazier and Brent Stalsby appeared today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Giblin.  Wood, Flanagan and Terry Stalsby will make their initial appearances tomorrow before Judge Giblin.  The punishment range for these offenses includes life in prison or the death penalty.

"This is a very dangerous group of people," U.S. Attorney Malcolm Bales said.

Bales rarely conducts press conferences. This time he does to create awareness of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. They're modern-day gangsters.

"They have to blood in to become an ABT member which says they must commit violence to an ABT, an ABT general or officer in order to become a member," Bales said.

They prohibit women as members.

"But they do have female associates," Bales said. "And those associates are known as featherwoods."

They bring their fights from the prison to the streets.

"If the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas is so active, then how many other ABT members are walking the streets of Deep East Texas?" Bales said. "Federal authorities say that's difficult to know."

"They are disguising the fact they are ABT members and that's one of the efforts of the law enforcement agents involved in this case is who is an ABT member and what are they doing," Bales said.

Local authorities know they'll see ABT's crimes first, but are reassured by the work of an ABT federal crime task force.

"We're not going to rest until we have shattered what we understand to be their current structure," Bales said.
