Woman wants justice for brother's murder

Beating death of Armando Antu remains unsolved


SAN ANTONIO - A San Antonio woman is desperate for answers after her brother was found beaten and left for dead on the city's south side.

Armando Antu, 38, was found lying on South New Braunfels and Betty Jean on January 16. He was taken to the hospital where he slipped into a coma and later died.

Annette Antu said she was very close to her little brother, Armando, which is why it was so painful for her to watch him take his last breath at the hospital.

"Me and my brother were real close," said Antu. "And, he was real intelligent and a great guy."

"Some other people almost ran over him," she said, "And, they thought he was dead."

Annette Antu said she knows her brother had some problems, but he still didn't deserve to die this way. She also said someone out there saw something that night and she just wants them to come forward.

"There might be someone saying, 'he was just an alcoholic, an addict' and that they're not going to say anything," she said.

Annette Antu said now she only finds comfort from the last message he left on her phone before he died.

"It was my brother saying how tired he was and how he tired he was of living like that," she said. "And, that he was sorry for all the trouble he had brought upon us and that he loved us."

Although Armando Antu was found in pretty bad shape, he was still coherent enough to tell police that three people had beat him up with a baseball bat.

If you have any information on his death or if you saw something that night on South New Braunfels, call Crime Stoppers at (210) 224-STOP.
