Reward offered for info in NE Side murder case

Kesha Yvette Fry, 29, found shot to death off Rittiman Road

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are appealing to the public for information in the Sept. 4 slaying of Kesha Yvette Fry, 29, who was found shot to death behind an abandoned bar off Rittiman Road.

They announced Friday morning that Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of her killer.

Officers who responded to the 4700 block of Rittiman Road at the time of the murder said that two homeless people had discovered Fry badly wounded in a parking lot behind what used to be the Royal Club.

Fry, who was reportedly suffering from a gunshot wound to her head, was rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center where she died.

Police have not made any arrests yet.

According to neighbors, Fry lived in an apartment building not far from where she was killed, in the 4800 block of Goldfield Drive.

Several neighbors described her as being a bit belligerent, but Jairo Valle believes she was misunderstood.

"She would just walk out and yell really loud and cause a lot of chaos," Valle said. "But she was a good girl. She just had nowhere to fit in, really. If you sat down and talked to her, she was a really good person. She was really kind."

On Friday morning, a maintenance worker continued making repairs to the apartment where Fry had lived.

Boards covered two windows that neighbors said Fry herself had broken.

However, police said it was violence at the hands of someone else that ended Fry's life.

They ask anyone who has information about her killer to call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 210-224-STOP (7867).
