Pregnant Murder Victim's Family Makes a Plea for Help

The family of a murdered pregnant mom carried a huge portrait of her through the Houston Police Department earlier today. The blown-up photo, encased in a tall frame, was part of their tearful plea for help in finding the woman's alleged killer who police say is still at large.

Maria Lucrecia was killed last Saturday while she was working at her cleaning job at the Eclipse Gentleman's club on South Gessner.

Police have charged Osvaldo Fernandez-Aguilar with capital murder in the killing. Authorities say they know Fernandez-Aguilar has relatives still here in Houston and are looking for help finding him.

According to a report, Fernandez-Aguilar was a former security guard at the night club. Police suspect him with stealing cash from a register before he left the scene.

The police victim services department is currently working with the family in dealing with this tragedy, according to Jodi Silva of the Houston Police Department.

Anyone with information on Fernandez-Aguilar should contact homicide police at 713-308-3600.
