The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help identifying a person of interest in one, and possibly two unsolved murders. NEWS 92 FM’s Steve Ottesen reports.
Investigators want to question a 40-year old man who eyewitnesses say asked about Coty Beavers several days before he was shot to death in his northwest Harris County apartment. Until now, the murder has been a mystery, but they hope this person of interest will tell them why Beavers was murdered last November.
They also hope this person may be able to tell them about the unsolved murder of Gelareh Bagherzade.
She was the girlfriend of Coty Beaver’s twin brother who was killed ten months earlier while driving to her Galleria-area townhouse. Investigators have not disclosed any evidence linking the cases other than the sibling relationship.
They just say the medical student was an outspoken critic of the government in Iran.
