Daughters asking public for information on mom's June murder


Police say their all of their leads have turned out to be dead ends. So on Saturday, investigators joined the woman's loved ones to see if someone can help them find her killer.

Sadie Butler's family is going door to door with Houston police officers, putting up flyers. They're hoping someone who sees this picture can bring them the answers to questions they've been asking for nearly five months.

"She was a caring person. She was loved by everybody. We just don't understand why somebody would do this to her," said Sadie's daughter, Kimberly Butler.

On June 9, the 57-year-old was found shot to death at a bus stop on West Tidwell. It was 6:20am when a passerby noticed Sadie's body and called police.

Since then, detectives say the case has gone cold.

"We have no witnesses or investigative leads, so we are asking for the public's help to give us any information they may have," said officer Mark Coleman with HPD's homicide division.

"If anyone may have seen anything or heard anything, if you guys could just come forward to help us solve this crime," said Sadie's other daughter, Dolores Gable.

Police hope the flyers will lead to a suspect, so that her loved ones can see someone held accountable for her murder.
