Chris Bunn had a long history with law enforcement in both Worth and Dougherty Counties. He'd been picked up on charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, and harassing phone calls, but Tuesday night his involvement with the legal system ended, after his violent behavior got out of control., some verbal, but it just escalated. It actually got to the point where he had those folks kept hostage in their own home. The Chief says Christopher Bunn's body has been sent to the crime lab for an autopsy. No charges have been filed."
