Triathlete Monica Caban, 39, was biking with a friend in October when a driver crashed into her from behind, paralyzing her from the waist down. At least 11 cyclists have died from collisions with drivers in and around the San Antonio area since 2009. Six of those deaths have been in the past year, including a North Side accident last week. Fellow triathlete Mack Williams started an online petition last week calling for cyclist safety on the roadways and for the City of San Antonio to better enforce its safe-passing ordinance.


The investigation turned up "no scientific or physical or testimonial evidence of any kind we could use in court against Mr. Chapa," said Herberg last week, explaining why the DA's office ended its investigation. Herberg said Chapa, through his attorney, later told the DA's office the memoir was a work of fiction. "As a practical matter, there's certainly not evidence a jury would use to convict beyond a reasonable doubt on a murder charge," Herberg said. "We have no corroborating evidence that the child died from drowning, as he said in his memoir."

"This was obviously alarming to us as a school system, so we called in Mr. Chapa and investigators from HR told him because of what's in that memoir we needed to put him on paid administrative leave," said Northside ISD spokesman Pascual Gonzales. "Since it looks like there's a good chance he'll be cleared of these charges or that the DA will not pursue, there's a reasonable chance he will be returned to the classroom," Gonzales said.
