Arson suspected in fire that destroy beauty shop
JASPER - KJAS Radio by Mike Lout

Arson is strongly suspected as the cause of a Friday evening fire that destroyed a beauty shop on the south side of Jasper.

The volunteers of the Jasper Fire Department were dispatched to the scene shortly after 9:30, when it was reported that flames could be seen coming from the left rear of the wood frame structure located at 971 South Bowie Street.

The blaze quickly spread through the building and the structure was completely engulfed in flames by the time the firemen arrived at the scene.

Jasper Fire Marshall Michael Collier said that police at the scene reportedly talked to a neighbor who told them that she saw at least one man or possibly two coming from behind the structure just minutes before the blaze broke out. However, the possible identity of those individuals, their description, and other details have not been released as the investigation into the incident continues.

Firemen battled the blaze till well after 10:00, before finally bringing it under control. However, no injuries resulted from the incident.

Collier said Dennis Austin and his wife owned the business.

Texas Attorney General indicted on securities fraud charge
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A special prosecutor says Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has been indicted on felony charges accusing the Republican of misleading investors before taking office.
Kent Schaffer, a Houston defense attorney appointed by a judge to the case, told The New York Times on Saturday that Collin County grand jurors indicted Paxton on two counts of first-degree securities fraud and a lesser charge of not registering.

The most serious allegations are that he encouraged investment in a tech startup that's now under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The charges stem from activity before Paxton took office in January. Paxton was fined last year for not disclosing to Texas securities regulators he was getting commissions for soliciting investors.

Paxton aides didn't respond to messages seeking comment from The Associated Press.
