$20,000 reward in Valentine’s Day murder case   

_____________________________________________________________ 

  

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a cold case murder of a woman in 1986. Valentine’s Day this year will mark the 32nd anniversary of this unsolved case as detectives continue to seek resolution for the family and justice for the victim.

Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers has increased the reward to up to $20,000 if a tip leads to an arrest.

On Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 1986, Sheriff’s Office personnel were called to a scene in the Tealbriar development off of Highway 6. The home belonged to Marilu and Stephen Geri.

Deputies arrived at the home in the 9800 block of Chalford that morning after receiving reports that Marilu Geri was found bleeding and unresponsive.  She was transported to Fort Bend Community Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and was declared dead at that facility. 

Marilu and her husband had recently moved into the Chalford Street home, which is located along Highway 6, north of present-day Sugar Land Airport. The victim worked with her husband, who operated an insurance business from their upscale home.  By all accounts the victim and her husband lived and projected the lifestyle of an affluent couple. 

The victim was to host a party at their home the day of the murder in a combined celebration of Valentine’s Day and the birthday of her mother, Maria Serrato. Tragically, it was Marilu’s mother who discovered the crime as she arrived to help with party preparations. 

Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers is offering a $20,000 reward in hopes of collecting information that will aid the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office in solving this murder.  In the years following the murder, this case garnered national attention as it was profiled by Robert Stack on “Unsolved Mysteries”  (https://unsolved.com/gallery/marilu-geri/).

Fort Bend County Detectives have submitted physical evidence for laboratory examination using the latest in forensic analysis technology.  It is the Sheriff’s Office hopes that information provided by anyone with knowledge of this crime coupled with recent advances in forensic technology will result in justice in this case.

“This was a tragic crime that has lingered for more than 30 years,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “Despite the time frame, we are hoping there are residents who remain in the Houston area or elsewhere who might recall some detail that will lead to an arrest.”

          Anyone who has information on this crime is asked to call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers, Inc.

-          Call (281) 342-TIPS (8477)

-          Send a Text Message:  Text FBCCS plus your tip to CRIMES (274637)
