The Beaumont Bombing

In April 2018 just one month after the Austin serial bombings, an improvised explosive device was discovered at a Starbucks in Beaumont, Texas. Two weeks later a similar device was detonated outside of the St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. During the course of the investigation, the Bomber sent taunting postcards to police until the time of his capture. SA Tony Cattelan will present an overview on the incident and provide inside look on how the case unfolded.
