BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – As part of a public awareness campaign, the Texas Department of Public Safety is featuring an unsolved Bexar County murder from 2007.

DPS is hopeful that the public can help track down the person responsible for killing Blase Wright Jr., 21, on Feb. 2, 2007.

Wright was fatally shot by an unknown person during a burglary in his Universal City apartment. Witness reported seeing a man leave the apartment in a small gold car driven by a Hispanic woman.

DPS said the Texas Rangers want to identify the woman driving the car. A forensic sketch of the woman is pictured above. Witnesses said she had reddish hair.

KSAT's Courtney Friedman spoke with Wright's family earlier this year. Family members are still hopeful his killer will be found. Click here for that report.
