HOUSTON -

Months after her death, investigators continue to search for a cold-blooded killer that left a beloved family member dead.

57-year-old Sadie Butler was found dead at a Metro bus stop in the 5600 block of W. Tidwell in Northwest Houston in the early-morning hours of June 9.

On Saturday, her family and investigators returned to the scene where Butler was killed.

"We have very few leads. That's why we're here," said Officer Mark Coleman of the Houston Police Department.

Butler was shot in the head and beaten. But it doesn't appear robbery was the motive, according to authorities.

"We recovered her cell phone and other items from the scene that day," said Officer Coleman.

Butler was a grandmother and great grandmother. Her family describes her as a giving and wonderful person. The news of her murder devastated the family.

"it's hard not knowing the reason why. Not knowing who could have done this we just want to know why," said daughter Delores Gable.

Investigators said Butler was most likely waiting for the bus that morning. Her family said she never rode the bus, but investigators said her cell phone records show she called Metro more than once that morning.

Butler's birthday was Friday; she would have turned 58-years-old.

If you know anything about the crime call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477). A $5,000 reward is offered for information leading to an arrest
