Police are searching for the person responsible for sexually assaulting an elderly Houston woman and beating her to death.

Houston police said Alejandra Gueldner, 72, died on Jan. 17 after she was found beaten in front of a business near downtown Houston.

Police said Gueldner left work at the Hilton Americas at 1600 Lamar Street around midnight that day.

Officials said Gueldner was seen on surveillance video walking out the back door of the building and walking on Polk Street, before walking on Avenida De Las Americas. From there, video showed her walking in front of the George R. Brown Convention Center where she then appeared to turn onto Rusk Street. After that, she was not seen again.

According to police, Gueldner normally rode the METRO 50 Harrisburg line to her home near Broadway in southeast Houston.

Officials believe she either never made it to the bus stop at Texas Avenue and Hamilton Street or she decided to walk home.

Police said around 4:45 a.m. that morning, employees called 911 after they found Gueldner in front of their business in the 1200 block of Hardy Street.

She was transported to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead. Officials said Gueldner had suffered blunt force trauma and was sexually assaulted.  

Police said a witness described seeing Gueldner on Hardy Street around 3:45 a.m. Then, at about 4:30 a.m., a light colored SUV was seen driving by and briefly stopped. At this time police do not know if the driver is connected to this case.

Anyone with information is asked to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
