Murder of El Paso attorney remains unsolved, police search for clues

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – It has been three weeks since an El Paso couple were brutally shot and killed at their Central El Paso home, one killed and the other seriously injured. The killer is still at large and police are calling on the public to provide information on the case.

It happened just after 7:35 p.m. on Saturday, November 14, on the 3000 block of Copper Avenue on the edge of Memorial Park. A shooter shot 50-year-old Georgette Kaufmann several times and then aimed the gun at her husband, 48-year-old Daniel Kaufmann.

Georgette Kaufmann died in her backyard, and Daniel Kaufmann was taken to an area hospital where he was treated for gunshot wounds and later released. KTSM learned that the couple’s son was not home at the time of the shooting.

Police have yet to say whether the couple’s work as a lawyer – Georgette of the Attorney General for child support or Daniel – as a private family law attorney had anything to do with the shooting.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 5’10 “to 6’0” tall with a thin physique. He may have been bald and wore dark clothing on the day of the murder.

Anyone with information about this murder should call Crime Stoppers of El Paso immediately at 566-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.crimestoppersofelpaso.org. You will remain anonymous and if your tip results in an arrest you may qualify for a cash award.
