FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas -- Authorities in Fort Bend County are looking for information leading to the resolution of a 2011 cold case in Stafford.

Officials are investigating the murder of Oscar Garcia, 45, who was killed on Dec. 19, 2011 in a room at the Super 8 Motel, located at 12845 FM 1092 in Stafford.

Stafford police were called to the scene around 5:21 p.m. for shots being fired in the motel

Upon arrival, Stafford police detectives found Garcia’s body in a first-floor room. He had been shot to death. Detectives learned that Garcia was a regular guest at this motel. He also was known to frequent the West Airport Inn at 10570 W. Airport in Stafford, but always stayed in the Super 8 Motel while in town.

Police were able to recover video that showed a red two-door convertible, a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, pull into the motel and back into a parking space near the victim’s room. The two suspects exited the vehicle. They were wearing dark clothes and dark hoodies.

Multiple gunshots were heard and the suspects were seen running from the motel and getting into the convertible and leaving the scene at a high rate of speed, according to police. While getting into the vehicle, the video showed that one of the suspects was wearing a white baseball cap under the hoodie.

Police said Garcia’s last known address was the 1200 block of Joyce in Weslaco, Texas. He was 5’10” and weighed 275 pounds.

Investigators ask that anyone who may have seen Garcia on that date or who may have information on the two suspects to call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers, Inc.

Information which leads to the arrest and filing of charges on the suspects involved could earn up to a $5,000 cash reward.

Call the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at 281-341-4665, Fort Bend Crime Stoppers, Inc. at 281-342-TIPS (8477) or text FBCCS plus the tip to CRIMES (274637). Tips also can be submitted online.
