Police searching for clues in murder of 56-year-old grandfather on Sept. 17

Sister of murdered man says she wants to know who killed her brother

SAN ANTONIO - It’s been one month and a day and police are no closer to finding out who killed a San Antonio grandfather on Sept. 17.

It’s a case with very few known details.

"Was he getting off the bus? Was he waiting for the bus? Did someone drive up and push him out of a car? I don't know. We don't know, but the doctor told me he died instantly,” said Brenda Ross, Stephen Graves’ older sister.

Ross said someone stabbed her 56-year-old brother in the 500 block of Ruiz Street, causing him to collapse and die just outside of a Pik Nik store.

“The detective told me there were plenty of people around, but no one will talk. No one will tell them anything,” Ross said.

Ross said Graves had just moved into a new apartment two days before he was killed. She said he would frequent the area where his murder took place.

Graves had no known enemies. No one wanted him dead. His sudden passing has been a devastating and surprising blow to Ross’ family.

“If we could just get our closure and find out more, find the person who did it, I think I would feel so much better and I could just move on,” Ross said.

The only description police have is from a man seen running from the scene. He’s described as being 140-150 pounds, 5 foot 5 inches tall and was wearing a navy blue outfit on the day of Graves’ death.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for any information leading to an arrest.
