According to, Le had recently moved to Austin in the hopes of attending school there. “Anybody who had the privilege of knowing her would tell you she’s just full of life,” a family member told “Not to sound cliché, she would just brighten up a room when she would walk in. She had an amazing quirkiness about her that was irreplaceable."

The question of additional capital murder charges against suspect Rashad Owens is still being considered. "Texas State law requires two or more deaths in the same criminal transaction for the filing of a capital murder charge," according to a release from the Austin Police Department.

Owens is currently being held on a bond of $3 million in Travis County jail.
