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 up to a $28,500 monetary 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 or P3 Tips App. Remember ALL tips are strictly anonymous.
