A Nacogdoches County man goes on an overnight crime spree that ends with his death. 33-year-old, Timothy Wayne Rushing, committed armed robbery, kidnapping, and running from the law before eventually shooting himself.
The former inmate of the Nacogdoches County Jail began his unexplained behavior around 11:30 last night at his father's house on County Road 388, in the vicinity of the Blackjack Community. There he stole a car and guns. He then fired shots into his father's house, went next door and robbed a relative of cash and credit cards. It was there that he kidnapped his former girlfriend, Lisa Lax and her 12-year-old daughter. Rushing later dropped the child off near the Pixey Community in the vicinity of farm to market roads 1878 and 2112.
