23 - MURDER: Gary & Stephanie Gillette

On Friday December 13, 1985 newlyweds Gary and Stephanie Gillette were celebrating Christmas as a new family. Gary had three daughters from a previous marriage and Stephanie loved them like her own.

The new, blended family had gotten a Christmas tree and were decorating the house on the 4800 block of Corpus Christi Texas. 

That weekend, Gary who was a successful business owner in the oil industry attend some holiday parties with his young wife, while his ex-wife watched the children at her home.

On December 14, 1985 Gary and Stephanie were brutally murdered with a hatchet in their home. The same hatchet used to trim the Christmas tree.

The bodies were discovered by police the next day.

An autopsy showed the killer(s) returned to the home and stabbed the bodies to make sure they were dead. 

Police say there were no signs of forced entry and have collected several items into evidence including fingerprints, possible DNA, the knife and the hatchet.

In June, 1986 a Deputy Constable who knew the couple was arrested on two counts murder. But, the following year the case was dismissed for lack of evidence.

The victim's daughter met with him as an adult. She talks about the case, missing her father and her message to her father and step-mother's killer.

If you have any information in the case, please call the Corpus Christi Police at (361) 886-2600.
