PRESS CONFERENCE WITH FAMILY OF SLAIN NAVY VETERAN
[HOUSTON, TX] On Thursday December 16, 2021 at 10:30am at FIEL Headquarters (6610 Harwin #214 Houston, TX77036) will gather to ask for community support in finding the killer of Army Veteran Mauro Gauna. The Gauna Family and FIEL spokespeople will be available for comment.
On December 1st 2021 at approximately 6:00pm Mauro Gauna was shot to death while driving. The family asks for the community’s support in identifying the suspect or suspects responsible for this and is preparing to offer a reward leading up to the capture of the people responsible.
" We want to remind people that it is important for them to come forward and help this family find closure. We want to make sure that people understand that aside from helping out this family there could be help for them in the form of a reward or potential immigration benefits. We believe there to be people out there who bared witness to this since it happened on a part of Houston’s highways which is transited by thousands of people especially during rush hour. We hope that with the community’s help we can find the people responsible for this and bring them to justice. " – Cesar Espinosa FIEL Executive Director
