Outback Shooting Victim Rebecca Shifflet Remembered

  Two of those killed in a Texarkana Outback earlier this week, worked at the restaurant in Longview before moving on to Texarkana.

  Many who knew Diana native Rebecca Shifflet, say she was a young woman who had tremendous potential.

    She's remembered as a caring and bright woman. The 24 year old was six months pregnant. Rebecca was a stellar student at New Diana, where she was an honor role student, a majorette, and a track athlete. She had worked for Outback steakhouse for four years, and was already a manager.

     Her death comes as a shock to the community. "I was just totally shocked... it was such a tragedy to hear that such a nice young lady this had happened to her, I just really didn't know if I understood totally what happened" says New Diana high school staff member Pam Davis.

    "She had great potential, she could do everything she wanted to do... Very intelligent young lady" says Rebecca's former teacher, Donna Miller. Funeral services for Rebecca Shifflet and her unborn daughter "Lillian Renee" will be at 2 o'clock tomorrow at First Baptist Church in Diana.

    Since Rebecca was 6 months pregnant, police are consulting with the d-a on how to classify the unborn child. A new Texas law that went into effect this week would allow prosecutors to file an additional murder charge for the unborn baby.
