A Houston man allegedly lured a convicted sex offender to his death in what is being described as a possible case of vigilante justice.

James Lewis Spencer III, 24, is charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of Sean Connery Showers, 37, who was found unresponsive, lying in a ditch near a park on Northwood Street, in the early morning hours of May 29, 2023, according to the Houston Police Department.

Spencer allegedly told someone “he believed the police were not doing enough to keep pedophiles incarcerated,” and he wanted to “rob and harm those types of men [because] they would do bad things to little children and other people,” an affidavit filed in Harris County last week states.
