After murdering two women and molesting his granddaughter, William
Thad Greenwood, 60, will soon be making his final trip to prison. He was
sentenced Wednesday in Liberty County to life in prison without the
possibility of parole.
His conviction this week for the continuous sexual
assault of his granddaughter came 40 years after he pleaded guilty to
the abductions, rapes and murders of two women in the Highlands-Baytown
area. For those two murders in Harris County, he was sentenced to 36
years in prison. In 1991, after serving roughly a third of his sentence,
he was paroled and relocated from Highlands to Hull, Texas.
Liberty County Assistant District Attorney Tami Pierce,
who prosecuted Greenwood for the child sex abuse case in the 75th State
District Court before the Honorable Judge Mark Morefield, believes
Greenwood may have other victims. According to Pierce, two other women
also have made outcries of sexual abuse against Greenwood.
