Lufkin, TX — A convicted Nacogdoches murderer turned himself in Monday as a suspect in a Lufkin rape.
Rickie Griffin, released on parole in October 2002 for the 1988 stabbing death of a man, was taken into custody after a woman he knows told police he raped her Oct. 30. The woman was reportedly visiting a friend’s Lufkin apartment when Griffin stopped by to visit. About 15 minutes later, the woman got into Griffin’s car thinking he was taking her to the store, but that was not Griffin’s plan, according to an arrest affidavit. When they were in the car together, he reportedly told the woman he was “going to get some of that,” to which she told him she knew what he meant and “no, he wasn’t.”
