Blotter: Little Elm police say no arrests in stabbing homicide, offer no additional information

Little Elm police said they cannot release any additional information about the circumstances surrounding the stabbing death of Christopher Singh on Sunday night, according to Sgt. Marcus Maxie, a spokesman for the department. 

Maxie confirmed police have not made any arrests in the case and said investigators had "nothing to report" about the ongoing investigation. 

Singh, a 31-year-old Frisco man, died from a stab wound to the chest about 9:20 p.m. Sunday at Medical City Denton. In a town of Little Elm press release, police said he suffered serious wounds as a result of an argument with his spouse at The Luxe 3Eighty apartments in the 26400 block of East University Drive. 

The woman also was hospitalized with injuries that night.

The medical examiner officially ruled Singh's death a homicide on Monday, but police officials have not been able to confirm whether the woman stabbed the man. 

"I'm not going to say that we even have a suspect," Little Elm police Lt. Larry Denison said late Monday afternoon. 

The town of Little Elm issued a news release Monday morning, saying police responded to a domestic dispute at the apartment complex about 8:20 p.m. Sunday.

The release said the man suffered serious wounds "apparently as a result of the argument." Maxie said he could not confirm how many wounds the man suffered or what type of weapon was used in the incident. 

Singh was treated at Medical City Denton, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later. The woman had injuries that weren't life threatening, and she was treated at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton, the press release said.

Singh's 27-year-old brother, Richard Singh, said the town press release incorrectly indicated his brother was married to the woman. They were dating for about two years and lived together in the apartment, he said.

No updates in Clairmont homicide investigation, Corinth police say 

Corinth police say they still haven't made an arrest in the fatal shooting of 21-year-old Amanda Clairmont, whose body was found Nov. 19 in a vacant parking lot off Interstate 35E. 

Officials said investigators still are pursuing leads, but the police department has not released any additional information since finding her body in the vacant parking lot in the 5700 block of South Interstate 35E.

Clairmont most recently attended the University of North Texas. Her half-brother, Illinois resident Mike Gawlik, said he learned from Clairmont's friends she was drinking in the Fry Street bar area the night before. Another witness said she was with at least one person at the time.

The parking lot where Clairmont's body was found is next to a Nissan dealership. Several houses border the lot, and nearby resident Tanya Kiefer said she heard four gunshots in the area between midnight and 1 a.m. Nov. 19.

Other reports 

5300 bock of East McKinney Street — A person who shot a dog with a BB gun Monday said they were trying to defend themselves, according to police.

The dog owners reported the person, who was identified only as their neighbor, for animal cruelty about 7 p.m. at the Ashli Oaks of Denton mobile home park in the 5300 block of East McKinney Street. After speaking with both parties, police determined there were no violations. The report did not specify why the man fired at the dog.

Police did not make any arrests or issue a citation.

Intersection of North Elm and West McKinney streets — A 64-year-old woman's purse was returned to her on Monday shortly after someone stole it and caused her to fall on the ground near North Elm and West McKinney streets, police said. 

It's unclear how the purse was returned to the woman. After police responded to the theft in progress call at the intersection, they contacted a possible suspect in the area. 

Police said the potential suspect didn't have the purse, and officers couldn't contact the victim to confirm it was the same person in the theft. Officers released the suspect from the scene and eventually made contact with the victim, who said the purse had been returned. 

Police said they don't know whether anything was stolen from the purse. No arrests were made. 

300 block of Mockingbird Lane — A 30-year-old woman said someone stole a shotgun, a handgun and several miscellaneous tools from her east Denton home on Monday. 

She said the suspect entered the home between noon and 3 p.m. Police did not find the person when they arrived on the scene, and no arrests were made. 

200 block of South Bonnie Brae Street — 21-year-old man hit another man over the head with a coffee mug Monday after he pulled a gun in a parking lot, according to a police report. 

The report did not specify why the man initially pulled the gun. Police said the 21-year-old took the man's gun away and started fighting in the parking lot. The man with the gun eventually fled the scene before police arrived about 11:20 p.m. 

No arrests were made.
