Blue Bell video suspect identified

by Courtesy Lufkin Police Department

VIRAL BLUE BELL VIDEO UPDATE: We have identified the “Blue Bell licker” as a juvenile from San Antonio. Under Texas law, anyone under the age of 17 is considered a juvenile.

The suspect is tied to the Lufkin area through her boyfriend’s family. We have spoken with her boyfriend, who is an adult, as well. They were both forthcoming with what occurred and admitted to the act.

What made this case difficult is that a “catfish” with a similar screen name (within one letter of the suspect’s screen name) began taking credit for it.

It was actually the catfish and NOT our suspect who bragged on Instagram about the incident saying:

“Yeah, I really did that. You can call it Flu Bell ice cream now ‘cause I was a lil sick last week. Repost yourself doing this. Let’s see if we can start an epidemic (literally).”

There were roughly 4-6 women with similar screen names and appearances that law enforcement had to eliminate – including the catfish – before getting to the actual suspect.

We do not intend to pursue charges against her as an “adult” and therefore what happens from here is at the discretion of the juvenile justice system. We cannot speak for them as to what charge she will face in the juvenile justice system.

As to whether her boyfriend will face charges, we are currently discussing his involvement with prosecutors.
