An arrest has been made in connection to the murder case of beloved HEB deli worker, Paulita Boyd.
Her granddaughter's husband, R.C. Curtis, is accused of using Boyd's credit cards in the days after she was killed. Curtis has known Paulita's Boyd's family since he was 11 years old. He went to school with Boyd's granddaughter and eventually married her. They have three sons together.
San Antonio police say Curtis was using Boyd's debit card after she died. San Antonio police released surveillance video showing two men shopping with the murdered woman's money.
Maribel Mendez, Boyd's daughter and Curtis' mother-in-law, is coming to his defense.
"She could always rely on R.C. to help her and take her to the store," Mendez said. "They had that kind of relationship, and she loved him, and I just think she would be outraged, too, that they would think that he did it."
Curtis is not charged with murder. Only with fraud for allegedly using Boyd's credit cards, but police say that could change.
"Right now, he's just a person of interest [in the murder investigation,]" said San Antonio Police Sgt. Jesse Salame. "There's still a lot of work to be done on the investigation."
Boyd was a deli worker at the HEB on DeZavala and I-10 for over two decades. The 75-year-old needed a cane to get around. She lived near the grocery store. Her body was found at her apartment on Oct. 21. She had been beaten, strangled and her purse was stolen.
"He's innocent; the person that he is, he's just not that kind of person," Mendez said. "He's not a violent person. He has his three sons. He wouldn't throw away their future for this."
