A Plea to the Public

Raul Amaro
Raquel Ramirez took to the podium during a morning press conference in the Crime Stoppers media room.  Her eyes welling with tears, she pleaded for information about the November 28 slaying of her uncle Raul Amaro.

On November 28th, 2011, Raul Amaro stopped at a gas station near the 13100 block of Bissonet.  While congregating near the side of the gas station Amaro was approached by two black male suspects.  The suspects attempted to rob Amaro, but when he fought back, he was shot one time.  Amaro succumbed to his injuries en route to the hospital.

 Wednesday’s press conference asked citizens to report information anonymously to Crime Stoppers and help bring closure to this case.  During the press conference an increased reward of up to $11,000.00 was announced for any information that leads to the filing of charges or arrest of a suspect.

“Our family’s world was rocked by this tragedy,” stated Ramirez during the family’s remarks. “We’re here to get these criminals off the streets so no other family has to go through the loss that we’ve been through.”

Investigators say that those criminals are described as two black males, with slender builds and short hair, between the ages of 20 and 30.  “We have very little information about these suspects at this time,” claimed Dep. Jason Brown from the Harris County Sheriff’s Homicide Unit.
“My uncle was a good person.  He was always happy and I can’t remember a bad day with him,” concluded Ramirez as the cameras shut down, and the microphones turned off. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS
