HOUSTON – Police are asking for the public’s help in solving a cold case in 2013 in which two men and a woman were killed in a northwest Houston apartment.

The slayings were reported at 4:40 p.m. April 17 in the 1300 block of Greens Parkway.

Houston police said a coworker of Cesar Joe Enriquez, 36, went to his apartment to check on him after he did not show up for work. Police said the apartment’s door was open and the coworker went inside, saw blood and called 911.
