Crime Stoppers: 1984 Cold Case Murder

Posted: Updated:
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.

The cold case heated up when the family received a letter in the mail which listed three names as the killers. Corpus Christi Police detectives believe the person who wrote the note has valuable information about the case, and they would like that person to provide investigators with more information.

If you have any information about this murder, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477 or visit www.888TIPS.com. The information you provide could earn you $1,000 in cash.
