Could the bike used in the cold-blooded daytime murder of President George H.W. Bush's doctor lead cops to the suspect?

"Pappas is considered to be armed and extremely unsafe", said the Houston Police on Twitter.

Joseph James Pappas, 62, is suspected of shooting Dr. Mark Hausknecht.

Pappas was in law enforcement for 30 years, including being a peace officer for two different constables' offices, and most recently serving as a reserve officer.

Pappas is considered armed and unsafe and has decades of experience in law enforcement under his belt, police said.

But "it hit him hard", he said, and Pappas stopped attending church for a long time afterward. "He's very risky and we need to get him into custody", Acevedo said.

Acevedo said officers found evidence connecting the suspect to Hausknecht's death while searching his home, but Pappas was not there.

The family further urges the public to focus on the photo of the suspect and other information about the suspect released by HPD Chief Acevedo yesterday.

On Wednesday, Pappas was charged for the July 20 murder of Dr. Hausknecht as he rode his bicycle to work in the Texas Medical Center.

Aispuro Torres asked the state's security and emergency departments to respond to the scene of the accident, he wrote on Twitter. A day earlier Herrera had headed home after spending almost a week in Mexico to celebrate a niece's baptism and visit relatives.

"He's considered to be armed and risky, and people should not try to deal with him directly", the police chief said.

"This man is risky, this man is capable, this man has some skills (with firearms)", he said.

Police went to his home three-bedroom home in Houston on Tuesday night but he was not there. Pappas' mother was one of Hausknecht's former patients who died during surgery over 20 years ago, providing a motive in the killing, the chief said during a press conference Wednesday.

He and Pappas were both seen riding their bicycles in the area shortly before the shooting.

Following Hausknecht's death, the former president released a statement expressing deep sadness.

'Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man.

According to real estate website Har.com, a man with the name Joseph James Pappas is listed as "a licensed real estate service provider in Houston, Texas", and he owns the Pappas Realty Company. "I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care", the statement read.

Additionally, Pappas' number also appears on ads in this week's Greensheet for was also trying to sell about $8,900 in antique furniture, a treadmill and hearing aid.

Acevedo explained that residents close to the shooting examined their home security video, and police were able to obtain an image on Monday that led to Pappas's identification through additional tips.
