Woman Seeks Answers In Boyfriend's Murder

Posted: Updated:

Three months after an Oklahoma City man was murdered in front of his apartment on his way home from work, his family is calling for justice. 

Alejandro Benitez was laid to rest in Tulsa near his family’s home. His girlfriend, Julissa Gomez, though, says she still doesn’t know who shot and killed him. 

Benitez was on his way home from work in July when he was robbed at gunpoint in front of his Putnam Green apartment in Northwest Oklahoma City. Several people say they saw two men running away. Police say Benitez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gomez says she is pregnant with Alejandro’s child. She says she’d like to see an arrest before she has to answer difficult questions. 

A GoFundMe account was created to help out Gomez and Benitez' parents. 

Police are still actively investigating the case and encouraging anyone with details to contact Crime Stoppers.
