These two amazing people were murdered over 23 years
ago and their killer is still at large.
DNA from their
murder is linked to another assault from 1990. Just months before their lives were taken from this world another
woman was attacked in Houston. She was able to escape and is thankfully, still alive. Despite the statutes of limitations expiring, making
it impossible to arrest him on criminal charges for that specific assault - this courageous and heroic woman came forward
to meet with a sketch artist to describe her attacker.
Below is the sketch of the attacker and murderer. Andy was
21 and Cheryl 22 - just beginning to explore life. This man chose to attack, torture and murder Cheryl and Andy.
He chose to end their lives and possibly others.
We need your help. Do the above sketches of the suspect
The two above sketches are of the same
man. The top sketch is of what the killer looked like during 1990. The second sketch is what we anticipate
the man would look like today (20 years later). He's described as in his late 20s/early 30s (in 1990), Caucasian, dark hair, dark eyes and 6ft. tall.
If you lived in Houston in 1990, try to recall anything that may relate to this tragic night.
If you know of anything that may
help lead to finding their killer please contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. All callers are anonymous.
