Crews to Demolish Historic Brownsville Building Monday

BROWNSVILLE — A Brownsville building with a dark past will be demolished next week.

Brownsville officials will hold a demolition ceremony Monday at 8:30 a.m. After that, crews will tear down the building at 9 a.m.

The historic building located on 805 East Tyler St. was the site of a triple murder. Homeowners in the neighborhood also complained about criminal activity inside the property.

In 2003, a father beheaded his three children inside the building. John Allen Rubio was convicted and sentenced to death for the killings.

The city acquired the building six years after the crime. Inspectors found asbestos in the building last December. It has since been removed.
