Chris McGuinness

Hello and welcome to Case Files, the police and courthouse blog for the Killeen Daily Herald.

I’m Chris McGuinness, the Herald’s crime reporter. I was given the opportunity to reboot this blog after my predecessor, Philip Jankowski, moved on to work at the Austin American-Statesman.

I hope to make Case Files a hub for local criminal justice news. I’ll be posting the latest crime reports on, and providing additional insight and information on the stories you read in the paper and on the website each day.

Have any suggestions on what you’d like to see on this blog? Feel free to leave a comment. You can also reach me by email at, or on Twitter @ChrismKDH.

Contact Chris McGuinness at or (254) 501-7568. Follow him on Twitter at ChrismKDH.
