Families plead for help in cold case

HOUSTON Family and friends say the two young men, Shaylon Guidry and William Outland, had their whole lives in front of them. Both were slated to be married, they each had kids and too early, family members say.

On October 1, 2007, investigators found the two young men with multiple gunshot wounds in the 700 block of North York. Authorities believe they were kidnapped earlier in the night, then were taken to one of their homes where a home invasion occurred by the kidnappers. What happened after that is unclear.

Their families are still devastated.

"I miss my baby boy. That was the youngest child I had. He was the end of my bloodline," said Eugene Pack, father of Shaylon Guidry.

During an emotional press conference Monday, they also pleaded for help from the public.

"Please, please help me fill some of this void that I have. Thank you all," said Dianne Outland, mother of William.

As for the murder case, investigators say their trail has gone cold. They do have a witness who saw an African-American man leaving the area driving a small gray vehicle.

Police ask anyone with information about this crime to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or log on to Crime-Stoppers.org. Callers remain anonymous and could earn a reward.
