Matthew Mehdi Rouhani, 61, Bayou Body Count No. 139

A man was found shot to death in his westside business Saturday and his car was stolen, Houston police say.

Matthew Mehdi Rouhani, 61, was found dead by employees in the 1600 block of Upland about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, HPD says.

"Mr. Rouhani had not been seen since last Tuesday (Aug. 30) and his employees became worried after repeated attempts to contact him were not successful," HPD says. "Employees forced entry into Rouhani's business at the above location and found him deceased."

Rouhani's light blue, four-door 2009 Honda with Texas license plates BGIZ-133 was stolen, police say.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
