UIW finally faces trial in Cameron Redus killing


Following a July 29 ruling by the Fourth Court of Appeals in San Antonio, the University of the Incarnate Word will finally have to answer in court for the actions of a troubled campus cop who fatally shot honors senior Cameron Redus outside his off-campus apartment nearly nine years ago.

A scheduled civil trial next month in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Mickey and Valerie Redus, Cameron’s parents, against UIW and former campus police officer Christopher Carter, comes after years of legal maneuvering by the university in federal and state courts. Each ruling has gone against UIW and favored the Redus family, media-shy evangelical Christians from Baytown who have consistently said their pursuit of justice and restoration of their son’s reputation is far more important than any monetary damages they might collect.

Their son’s life ended in the early hours of Dec. 6, 2013, when Cameron Redus was fatally shot by Carter, who had followed Redus to his apartment and attempted to arrest him after noticing him weaving in and out of a traffic lane along Broadway around 1 a.m. Carter later told Alamo Heights police officers a struggle with Redus occurred and he shot the unarmed student because he feared for his life.
