Dallas, Texas – The 53-year-old Chris Murzin, a father of three, was fatally shot last February and his family are still seeking for answers what had happened that day.
According to the incident report, the victim was found shot and killed on I-20 in his black SUV while he was headed to work on February 11, 2021, at 1 p.m.
Since the deadly shooting incident, the local police have learned little about this ‘mysterious killing’ of the University Park husband and father of three.
His wife and his three kids are seeking answers and they encourage the local authorities and the community increasing t0he cash reward hoping that someone will speak up.
“Quick sense of humor, great smile,” his widow, Christina Murzin, said. “Have to be strong, with Jack having special needs and Chris not here, I’m his sole caregiver.”
“No one deserves to die this way, unfair the person who took him away from us is still out there living their life like nothing happened,” Christina added.
The shooting happened near South Polk Street while the victim was driving along I-20 as he was headed to work. The early investigation showed that the shooter might had been driving a small silver SUV which was later caught on a surveillance camera.
The only motive investigators can come up with is road rage.
It was a cold day, below freezing, just days before Winter Storm Uri blanketed North Texas with snow.
A year after the incident, the police also believe someone will come up with an information that might help them figuring out what had really happened and catch the shooter.
“They know if they were driving down 20 during that time, and can remember seeing a medium to small size SUV,” Dallas PD Det. Tonya McDaniel said.
Det. McDaniel hopes that if the shooter confessed to someone, that person will come forward, even anonymously.
“How would your family feel it happened to you? You would want them to do the right thing. It is treating others how you would want to be treated,” she added.
The current cash reward is $75,000. That amount was raised by Christina and the local community in an effort to make someone speak about the incident.
In addition to the community’s efforts, Christina also hired private detectives that have been working on the case, but no one came up with something valuable that might help the authorities in solving the case.
Anyone with information that could help solve this case is asked to contact Det. McDaniel at 469-261-6790 or [email protected]. People can also report information to Crime Stoppers anonymously at 214-373-TIPS.
