Citizens Against Homicide  Newsletter Cover Story  Featuring Emily & Emilio Garcia's Murder-April 2010 Issue-By Sheila Smith(Emily's Mother)

pg35lgbar.jpg
Emily was born on July 27, 1977. She was a beautiful baby girl and, joining her big sister and me, life should have been happy and simple. But time became avoidably difficult and soon our family would become fragmented.
Emily endured a tragic childhood because of family discord and uncertainty and, by the time she reached adolescence, she had been victimized by abuse. Although remarkably creative and intelligent, these elements undeniably contributed to Emily developing behavioral and academic problems. She was angry, yet never did I know anyone more willing to forgive.
At the age of 14, Emily became more rebelious; often skipping school and running away. Her circle of friends was so large and varied that it was impossible to know where she was. I was always worrying and in fear for her safety.
Finally, out of desperation, I agreed with a judge to remand Emily to the Texas Youth Commission for a short period of time, dependant on her progress. I believed this was the only way to keep Emily safe, not only from her own destructive behavior, but from possible predators.
When Emily was released, she revealed that she had become pregnant. Emily was on her way to a medical appointment to verify her pregnancy, when she was abducted. That was February 11, 1993. She was 15 years old and I never saw my daughter again.
Her body was discovered on February 25, 1993, by a road worker on Old Cranes Mill Road near Canyon Lake in Comal County, Texas. Photos of the crime scene revealed her naked body in the brush with a strangulation mark around her neck and the imprint of a tire on her shoulder; as well as scratches and bruises associated with being dragged through the brush from the road. Her hands and feet tied to each other with a rope. Chief Hohertz of the Comal County Sheriff's Office explained that she had been repeatedly beaten, raped, and sodomized, causing her death and that of her unborn child, Emilio.
Although I searched for Emily everywhere, including hospitals and morgues, her death went unrealized for an entire year, because I did not think to look for her outside the county. It was during this year of searching that Emily was buried as a "Jane Doe" in Fischer Cemetery.
Losing an entire year of valuable time further complicated pursuing any suspect. The investigation of Emily's case has constantly been made more complicated by the traumatic nature of this crime, the reluctance of some people to discuss their relationship to her, and the bureaucratic mishaps. Not to mention that, after a year, the state cremated the babies remains, which would have allowed us to establish the identity of the father. No Dna was ever collected.
To this day, there remains no suspect(s) and very little physical evidence. Any theories we have assembled have been through unreliable means. We are truly desperate for any new leads.
In spite of my daughter's troubles, she was a person; beautiful, artistic, creative and at times tempermental. She liked music, dancing, and art. She liked the color red. She was fond of cooking and loved to eat; her favorite meal was lamb stew. She was always smiling and didn't know a stranger. She loved spending time at her grandparents home in Missouri and she loved nature.
My daughter's life was cut short; and my unborn grandson did not have the opportunity to experience his. They deserve peace and justice.
Often times, being the relative of a homicide victim is akin to being a fanatic. You feel an obsession to do something, anything; however the avenues of action can be very limiting. Althought there are a great many groups that offer emotional support, there is no handbook for what to do when your loved one is murdered. We would like to thank Citizens Against Homicide for their understanding and support.
Although the detectives who handle this case continue to refuse to allow a reward for information, it is our hope that someone who knew Emily and/or has information about her murder &will come forward to help us. We maintain a website where we are always available.

We need your help in finding the person(s) responsible for murdering my daughter, Emily Garcia and my unborn grandson, Emilio, on February 25, 1993 in Canyon Lake, Texas. Emily was only 15 years old at the time of her murder and pregnant with a little boy. Emily had been reported missing from San Antonio, Texas on February 12, 1993, which was 13 days before she had been murdered and her body found.
