Robert Balderrama Robert Balderrama
LYNN COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - On the third anniversary of Robert Balderrama's death, his family is still searching for answers surrounding his murder.

50-year-old Balderrama was found shot to death in a field in Lynn County in 2011.

Lynn County Sheriff’s say he died from apparent gunshot wounds to the chest but were unable to find the gun or the person who committed the crime.

Authorities say they are certain of one thing: the person who killed Balderrama was someone that he knew.

Despite the pain of loss, Balderrama’s family still laughs as the good years spend with their beloved family man.

Balderrama's daughter, Angel Mendez, said not a day goes by that she doesn't remember her dad.

Lydia Balderrama had just remarried Robert the Friday before his death and said she relives the pain of Robert's death over and over again.

The Lynn County Sheriff's Department is receiving assistance from the Texas Rangers in their investigation.

If you have any information on this case, please contact the Lynn County Sheriff's Office at (806) 561-4505.
