Any of you who work in Downtown Austin or hang at the Longbranch Inn knew Carl. He was a friendly, old Black man who always wore a black cowboy hat, had a soft yet gravelly voice and would always shake your hand. This guy never did anything wrong to anyone. I can't believe he was murdered. If you know ANYTHING about this, please call APD at the number listed below.
