Joseph Pappas Suspected Killer of George HW Bush Doctor

Joseph Pappas Suspected Killer of George HW Bush Doctor --- ===

Alternative theory - was it just man angry at a doctor who operated on his mother or was it a cover story for a terrorist attack like attacks in China blamed on angry former patients?

July 20, 2018 Joseph Pappas Suspected Killer of George HW Bush Doctor Joseph James Pappas, 65  is the suspect in shooting Dr. Mark Hausknecht as he rode his bike to work in Houston on July 20, 2018. He was former President George H.W. Bush’s cardiologist.  (1) Authorities believe it was an  an act of revenge for his deceased mother,  who died on the operating table 20 years ago.   (2)  Pappas was declared to be armed and dangerous and may be suicidal, and a friend was afraid he might have a hit list and attack another victim.  When Houston police officers found the suspect, he killed himself on Friday morning August 3rd(3)

That the doctor was shot three times while riding his bicycle, indicated evidence suspect had tactical skills to shoot multiple times to kill (5)  The suspect was identified by a tipster told investigators Pappas appeared to be the cyclist in a surveillance video. He was a real estate agent who was trained marksman who had worked for 30 years as a Texas constable and taken law enforcement courses as recently as 2017. After the shooting, Pappas transferred a deed from for his house which owed $4,409 in back taxes to a woman in Painsville who was told by Pappas that  he had a terminal illness, but later got a text  he was committing suicide and gave her instructions on how to secure the house. Evidence indicated Pappas put a lot of planning and showed an extreme interest in the doctor as nothing else looks like an explanation. His phone number later showed up as a Houston seller on a gun auction site where he might have been trying to sell several guns, ammunition, tactical vests and ballistic plates for car doors. though it was unclear if any of the firearms listed online were used in the shooting (4)

Similar attacks in China of people angry at doctors have been common for past 10 years.
