A Southwest Airlines employee killed in an El Paso International Airport parking lot was remembered as cordial, polite and kind in messages left by friends and coworkers.
There have been no arrests in the death of Juan R. Anzaldo, 49, who was killed on Nov. 19 in an employee parking lot at the airport. The manner of death has not been disclosed.
Anzaldo is survived by four sons and two daughters, according to a Dignity Memorial online obituary. Funeral services took place last week.
Anzaldo was a ground operations employee for Southwest Airlines, who friends and coworkers described as a kind person on messages left on a funeral home obituary.
"Juan your SWA work family will miss you dearly. A fantastic co-worker who always shared positivity and kindness with all. We will miss your smile," one mourner posted.
Another person described Anzaldo as a "truly an exceptional hard working young man who made you feel special."
Anzaldo was killed in an airport employee parking lot in what homicide detectives suspect was not a random attack, police officials have said.
Police initially described the incident as a possible robbery but later discarded that theory.
"The preliminary investigations suggest the victim and involved persons knew each other," police said in a statement last month.
Few details have been released as the investigation by the Crimes Against Persons Unit continues but police have said that the incident was not a robbery and was not a shooting.
There was no danger to travelers or the public at the airport, police officials have said.
Anyone with information on the homicide may call El Paso police at 915-832-4400 and may anonymously call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 915-566-8477.
