Yeah thanks guys. I'll def post something if something big comes out. I have no idea who's been cleared or not, but based on what little I know of the husband, I cannot possibly see him as being the type to do this kinda thing anyway. Based on what my friend said, they were each others pillars in their lives respectively.

Sadre Spinegnawer Sadre Spinegnawer I'm fine. I don't have a connection to the family, but my good friend is fairly close to them (which included Liz) and I know he's still pretty distraught over all this.

So I wanted to post a quick update to this -- amazingly, the killer still has not been brought to justice. There was a warrant issued for something earlier this year, but the results of it are unknown. It doesn't seem to have resulted in an arrest, but the warrant was reported by the media. It's likely for cell records or something, but who knows.

Someone did a write up on Medium earlier this month detailing the case and information so far -- but still nothing. I think this might end up being the first murder completely caught on tape, where they can't find who did it. So frustrating.

Started reading thread assuming a case with video would be solved by the end of the thread, not just left a mystery. Very rustled.

Searched online. Not much new but this from the last few days.


Is all that new details or bad reporting? How after so long investigating are they just now finding a voice recording of her saying "good morning" like she didn't know the person? And just now finding out or releasing a decal description from the truck?

All very strange and tragic. People think we know so much and are in such control, but nope.

That's actually new details. It stems from People magazine writing about this too. The decal from the truck is not new. They mentioned that on the first days, and a lot of people id'd it as a pro-4x model nissan frontier.

I hope you get some resolution on this AladainAF AladainAF . Delphi, IN is in the area of my old stomping grounds and they had a murder of a couple of young girls on a hiking trail a few years ago. No arrests despite having the fucker on color video and a recording of his voice talking to them (and reportedly DNA at the scene).

The cops have really screwed the pooch on it. First they called off the search early on the first night, only to find that they apparently walked right by the bodies. Then they released a sketch of the suspect only to release a completely different sketch like a year later. What little information they have released has been confusing.

Anyway, hopefully the cops running your investigation do a better job than the hayseeds in Indiana. Incredible that they could have so much information and not make an arrest in some of these cases.

So this is morbid, I'm sorry. Also not sure where to post it so mods move it if you need to, but I promised my friend I would do everything I could to help him and as such, this post appears. I also made this post on reddit in some of the obvious subs, but I'm doing everything I can to get this out here. This write up below is slightly different than what I posted on reddit, since there's a couple additional details from police and what my friend has told me.

Early in the morning around 6:50am on January 25 2019 in Tomball TX, approximately 5 minutes after her husband left for work, Elizabeth Barraza was in her front driveway setting some things up for a garage sale when a dark (possibly black) 4 door mid/late 2000s model Nissan Frontier stopped nearby. Out of the black truck someone walked out slowly and casual and exchanged some words with Elizabeth for about 5 seconds before pulling out a gun and shooting her point blank 3 times, then stood over her and fired once more while she was on the ground. She passed away the next day. This was all caught on a rather poor quality video by a neighbors surveillance. Please be aware, it shows everything, so please keep care watching it, it's extremely hard to watch. Another surveillance camera got another video of the truck going away.

Thus far, those responsible have not been apprehended. Elizabeth was an avid Star Wars fan, and was part of the local stormtrooper 501st legion, which often does appearances for charity. She passed away in the same hospital where she does most of her charity work. She was a loving soul and her family would love some kind of lead that helps investigators. The Peter Mayhew foundation is also rallying around the family and doing what they can to raise money to get the reward higher and such.

I am a good friend of one of the family members, and they know I am posting this. I just want to see if anyone can help with any information and hopefully get swift justice to the one who did this.

If you have any tips or information around this or can in any way help solve this case, please contact:

Summary of what we know, and all has been reported by the police or in the media:

1. The truck is a dark (or black) Nissan Frontier. Model mid/late 2000s.
2. Police are unknown if male or female.
3. Reward is currently up to $20,000.
4. The garage sale was not previously advertised. They put signs up earlier that morning. The purpose of the sale was to raise extra money for their 5 year anniversary, which was on 02/01.
5. (This is public record, but was not reported directly by the police). Elizabeth was employed in Data Analysis for a pipeline company. She had the day off.

Edits:

- My original post said 7:30am, but it was actually more like 6:50 or so. From what I gather, the 911 calls started at 6:55am.
- Edit: I was requested by a family member to remove some parts of my posts that contained speculation, out of concern to ensure all of the right info is out there. I will edit my post responses as well.
