HCSO Releases Sketch Of Person Of Interest In Death Of Coty Beavers


HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Wednesday evening, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office released a sketch of a man wanted in the shooting death of Coty Beavers.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a person of interest wanted for questioning in the November12, 2012 shooting death of 28-year-old Beavers at his northwest Harris County apartment.

Based upon the information gathered from reports and descriptions as well as the skill set of a sketch artist, a man with dark hair and thick dark eyebrows, wearing eyeglasses was rendered.

“Beavers was the twin brother of Cory Beavers, who had been the boyfriend of Gelareh Bagherzadeh, 30,” added officials with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. “She was shot to death while driving to her townhouse in the Galleria area of Houston, reportedly after visiting Cory Beavers. Bagherzadeh was an outspoken critic of the government of Iran, where she was born.”

“Her killing is being investigated by the Houston Police Department. Investigators with HPD and HCSO have disclosed no evidence linking the killings of Coty Beavers and Bagherzadeh.”

Authorities state that the suspect was last seen asking about Beavers at the Legacy Park Apartments, located on Legacy Park Drive, a few days before Beavers was shot multiple times at the complex.

“Anyone with information about the subject should call the Sheriff’s Office Homicide Division at 713-967-5810 or Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS,” added HCSO.
