Norbert Leo Butz’ Sister Murdered in Possible Hate Crime

Norbert Leo Butz’ sister, Teresa Butz, was killed and her partner severely wounded early Sunday by a man who attacked them as they slept in their home. A detective has confirmed that Teresa sacrificed herself to save her fiancée’s life during the attack. The murder is being investigated as a possible hate crime and the murderer is still at large, though police remain confident of apprehending her killer.

Norbert Leo Butz has been out of town working on the Broadway-bound Catch Me If You Can at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle. The production cancelled its preview performances in deference to his family emergency.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Butz family and to Miss Butz’ fiancée.
