Shock Waves in Anahuac

By Gloria Roemer

   The historic rural town of Anahuac, Texas was shocked to its core, when Texas Rangers started an investigation over two weeks ago over alleged accusations of a sexual assault of a minor. This resulted in Anahuac resident Robert Ethan Traxler being arrested on July 18th, 2022, on several counts of indecency and sexual assault of a minor.

District Attorney Cheryl Lieck commented, “This is an ongoing investigation. I believe there are other suspects involved and other victims. We are asking all to come forward. Beyond this, I am not able to comment further.”

The probable cause affidavit of this investigation names others that may be involved. Probable cause is explained as “a witness saw or heard certain things about the crime but did not actually see the crime being committed.”

The Texas Rangers are continuing the investigation and other arrests are expected soon.
