UPDATE: Authorities stated that Nichol Olsen’s boyfriend has been named as a “person of interest” in the case but is not a suspect.
The boyfriend has been identified as Charlie Wheeler, age 31. He reportedly is cooperating with police and has submitted tests to examine his hands for gunshot residue.
“He’s been cooperative with us knowing full well that under the circumstances he’s a person of interest,” said Bexas CountySheriff Salazar. “We’re not calling anybody a suspect at this point.”
San Antonio Express said that Wheeler’s attorney, Mark Stevens, stated, “What we would ask is that people not jump to conclusions, that they not demonize this young man who does not deserve it, that they let the professionals do their jobs and complete this investigation and respect the privacy of presumptively innocent people and of Charlie Wheeler, who did not commit a crime here.”
The sheriff’s office is awaiting the findings of the medical examiner in hopes that some questions about this case will be answered.
