Crime Stoppers: Homicide Cold Case Reopened

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It's been 19 years since a brutal stabbing murder claimed the life of a young Corpus Christi mom, and police need your help to solve this cold case.

Years after the murder of Kathleen Suckley, the case is still unsolved. Her two sons have now become young men, and continue to deal with the tragic unanswered loss of their mother.

"The young boys, Dutch and Kody, were there when the murder occurred,: said Dan Suckley. "That's part of their life that was taken from them, was the ability to grow up with a mother."

"The Corpus Christi Police Department is renewing the investigation due to the fact of new technology that's changing every day in the area of crime scene investigation," said Sgt. Richard L. Garcia of the CCPD.

"I think we all know there's someone out there in this community that has information that could help with this case," Suckley said.

"We hope to have closure for this family which, at this point, is in so much need of closure," Garcia said.

If you have any information regarding this homicide, please contact the CCPD's Homicide Division at 361-886-2850, or call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
