Accused Killer of Graham Man was Recently Committed to a Mental Health Facility

The 21-year-old charged in the death of a Graham ISD graduate in Monday's stabbing at the University of Texas tells police he doesn't remember anything that happened that day.

Kendrex White, a junior biology major at UT, is jailed on a one million dollar bond on murder charges.

Darrell Franklin has additional information on what lead to Monday's attack after we obtained his arrest affidavit.

According to the documents, White admitted to hearing voices and said a couple days before the attack he purchased a hunting knife. The same knife police say he used to kill 19-year-old Harrison Brown.

This all started Monday afternoon when police were called to an on-campus gym where witnesses said a black male stabbed four people, including Brown. A friend of Brown's told officers that he saw the 19-year-old walking out of the gym that afternoon.

Then he said he saw a black male making a punching motion towards Brown's chest. The friend said Brown then walked up to him, clutching his chest and said, "I think he just stabbed me." Brown died at the scene. Three others were also injured. Minutes later, police were able to arrest white who they say had a knife sheath to his belt.

According to his arrest affidavit, White said he thought he was arrested for pushing someone down with a bladed weapon. When officers asked White if he heard voices in his head, White said that his mind told him to quote, "to tell the truth and withhold any action that he did because he didn't really happen."

Authorities say White then stopped the interview by saying quote, "if I did something I don't' remember then I want to be told.'

UT Austin police say White may have been suffering from mental health issues, adding he had been recently been involuntarily committed in another city. Authorities are still trying to determine a motive.
