CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Police are asking for the public's help to solve a cold case murder that happened in 1984.

Sylvestre Paiz was a 47-year old overnight attendant for the Gulf Service Station at Kostoryz and SPID. On the night of July 30, 1984, Paiz was kidnapped from the service station and later found shot dead on Highway 59, four miles east of George West.

The killers were never caught.
