Woman Pleads for Help in Tracking Down Brother’s Killer

A sister in anguish one month after her brother’s murder–hoping you can help police put his killer behind bars.

“It’s been a month of heartache and…. do something” Brenda Ross told KTSA News, urging anyone with any information on her brother’s murder to come forward and tell police what they know.

“He’s known here in the neighborhood where I live carrying his weed whacker around and getting jobs–helping to do lawns and such” Ross said, describing her brother Stephen Graves, whose life was cut short September 17th in a vacant lot on Ruiz Street.

“His grand nieces and nephews just loved him too… he’s terribly missed” Ross said, adding her brother had been turning things around for himself.

“He lived at Have for Hope for a long time, and just got his own apartment and spent two nights in it” Ross said.

A Hispanic man was seen running away from the lot after Graves was stabbed. Anyone with any information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 224-STOP. You can remain anonymous, and a reward of up to $5000 is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest.

“Every day, I just pray every night that I’ll hear something” Ross said, hopeful someone will make that call.
