REWARD UP TO $75,000

Family of murdered Schertz businessman desperate for answers

GUADALUPE COUNTY, Texas – Family members of Henry Gutierrez are desperate for answers as the months since he was found shot to death drag on. To help the family get the peace of mind they deserve, the Guadalupe County Crime Stoppers, with the help of anonymous donors is offering reward for information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this case.

“Please help us to find his murderers and spare another family the pain of such a needless and tremendous loss,” pleaded Christine Guttierez, one of Henry’s surviving sisters. Adding that, “Henry was a devoted father, grandfather and brother who never met a stranger.  He embraced people and had a heart to unconditionally help those who were down and out. That is the Henry we know, love and miss.”

71 year old Gutierrez was found dead in his Schertz home on Christmas Eve 2015. Investigators say his white 2013 Ford Explorer was stolen from the home, and finally found months later in March 2016 parked at a San Marcos apartment complex.

Henry’s son, Miguel, hopes someone knows something that can help detectives find a resolution to this case – and put the person who did this in front of a jury.

“After seven agonizing months we are still searching for answers.  We ask that anyone who may have information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, to put yourself in our position and please come forward. I simply want justice for my father that he may rest in peace and some sense of closure for my family so that we may be able to move forward with our lives,” begged Miguel Gutierrez.

If you or someone you know has information that can help the Gutierrez family obtain justice for their loved one, please submit a tip immediately to the GCCS"s tip line 877-403-TIPS. You can also submit a tip online at www.gccsTIPS.org. or P3 Tips App.  Remember ALL tips are strictly anonymous.

Theft GCSO#1703503 (2017/04/13)

On 3/19/17 the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office received a theft complaint from a business in the 1600 block of Blue Creek near the New Berlin area. In this case, it appears two unknown subjects entered the business and stole a Hobart Champion Elite Welder/Generator from the bed of a pickup truck. This incident was documented via still shot images from a motion activated camera when the suspects entered and left the property.  

The truck is a light brown or tan 88-98 Chevrolet ¾ ton Regular cab, long bed truck with Farm plates, but the numbers on the plate are not visible. A white male subject is seen opening the gate and appears to be wearing a black muscle shirt, blue jeans, and boots. 

Later that night it appears a Black 99-04 Mustang also enters and leaves the property as well. Because it was at night, there is little identifying information for the second vehicle.  The suspects and the operator of both vehicles remain unidentified.

The Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance from the public in attempting to identify the subject and vehicles pictured in the photos. Anyone with any information can contact Investigator William Gostick at 830-379-1224 ext 2210 or William.gostick@co.guadalupe.tx.us

DPS Seeks Leads in Student’s 2002 Murder in Seguin

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is asking for the public’s help in solving the 2002 murder of Mikiko Kasahara, 21, in Seguin. As part of the DPS public awareness program, one unsolved case is featured each month by the Texas Rangers Unsolved Crimes Investigation Team in an effort to generate new investigative leads and bring added attention to unresolved or “cold cases” across the state.

In December 2002, Kasahara – a foreign student from Japan attending Texas Lutheran University in Seguin – held a party for her close friends to celebrate the end of the fall semester. The following morning on Dec. 14, a fire was reported in her apartment complex, and Kasahara was found dead inside her burned apartment. An autopsy determined she had been murdered.

 

Guadalupe County Crime Stoppers will offer up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person/persons responsible for Kasahara’s death. To be eligible for the cash reward, individuals can submit a tip by calling 877-403-TIPS (8477) or online at www.gccsTIPS.org. Anyone with information can remain anonymous.

Individuals can also submit information through the Texas Rangers’ Cold Case website or contact the Missing Persons Clearinghouse at 1-800-346-3243.

The Texas Ranger Unsolved Crimes Investigation Team was created to assist Texas law enforcement agencies investigating unsolved murders or violent serial crimes. Since there is no statute of limitations for the offense of murder, investigators pursue these cases to a successful resolution or until no viable leads remain.  

In addition, DPS created the Texas Rangers’ Unsolved Homicides webpage aimed at renewing public interest in unsolved cases. The site features more than 75 cases, including the division’s Top 12 Unsolved Cold Case Investigations. For more information, visit the Texas Rangers’ Cold Case website at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/TexasRangers/UnsolvedHomicides/index.htm.
