Charles Whitman
Charles Joseph Whitman (June 24, 1941 – August 1, 1966) was a student at the University of Texas at Austin who killed 14 people and wounded 32 others during a shooting rampage on and around the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. Three were killed inside the University’s tower and ten killed from the 28th floor observation deck of the University’s 307 foot administrative building on August 1, 1966; one died a week later from her wounds. The tower massacre happened shortly after Whitman murdered his wife and mother at their homes. He was eventually shot and killed by Austin Police Officer Houston McCoy,assisted by Austin Police Officer Ramiro Martinez. A brain tumor was found and initially reported as an astrocytoma brain tumor, although results from the subsequent Governor’s report investigation revealed the tumor was a glioblastoma that could have been a factor in the event.
