Roseli Paz-Perez

Man finds wife dead inside suburban home with 2-year-old; suspect on the run

Texas authorities are asking the public’s assistance on any information regarding a vehicle that’s possibly linked to the killing of a woman inside her home.

NBC reports that Dallas police officers responded to a robbery call at around 2:59 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, off of the 9300 block of Sedgemoor Avenue. A man who lives in the home told officers he found his wife inside the home, dead. The victim’s 2-year-old son was inside the residence when the incident occurred, but was found uninjured.

The victim, identified as Roseli Paz-Perez, died from homicidal violence, according to police, although it’s still unclear what kind of violence took her life. Homicide detectives canvassed the area and are currently investigating the incident.

“He [the victim’s husband] went in to check on her because he had not been able to get in contact with her. Once he went inside, he found her deceased,” Deputy Chief Thomas Castro told ABC.

Home surveillance footage taken the day she was killed shows a vehicle driving away from the residence. Authorities are seeking assistance from anyone who can identify the vehicle or anyone who knows anything about the victim’s death. The five-second clip shows a black Sedan driving by.

Neighbors described the victim as sweet and friendly and said they have no idea why someone wanted her dead. Detectives said Roseli’s death is likely linked to a string of home invasions that occurred in the Dallas residential area over the past month.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the  Homicide Det. Shelton at c.shelton@dallascityhall.com or 214-671-3612.
