Murder victim's family pleads for help in finding killer

Posted: Updated:

The family of a man shot to death last week in east Austin is pleading with the public for help finding the person who pulled the trigger.

"He was a loving man and he always, "Cadeline Reyna, the victim's daughter said.

Cadeline Reyna, 14, addressed the media Thursday in an effort to find the person who killed her father--Roberto.

"I want closure for my dad and our family," she said.

She was too shaken to say much more.

Roberto Reyna was shot in the chest just minutes after he turned 36 on Friday, July 19. He was at this home in the 3500 block of Gonzales Street celebrating his birthday.

"Mr. Reyna met up with an unknown Hispanic male out in front of the residence. For some unknown reason, the suspect produced a firearm and shot Mr. Reyna," APD Sgt. Brian Miller said.

Police released a sketch of the suspect. He is described as Hispanic, in his 20s, 5'7" in height with a medium build and a shaved head. Police say he drove off in a dark-colored SUV.

Reyna upholstered boats and cars for a living. He leaves behind three children.

In addition to his daughter, his 11-year-old son was also present at APD.

His ex-wife, made this plea.

"We are asking anyone to step forward if you have information. He loved his children. He was a good family man no 14-year-old should have to bury their dad," Jennifer Moreno, the victim's ex-wife said.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.
