EL PASO, Texas – El Paso police on Friday asked for the public’s help in finding the man who shot an attorney couple in central El Paso last month, killing the wife and seriously injuring her husband.

On Nov. 14, investigators said an unidentified man went to a home along the 3000 block of Copper Avenue near Memorial Park.

Police said the man was armed with a handgun and shot and killed 50-year-old Georgette Kaufman. She was shot multiple times.

After that, the man then shot 48-year-old Daniel Kaufman, who was injured and taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police have not said whether the shooting had anything to do with the couple’s jobs with the state attorney general’s office handling child support enforcement.

Police describe the gunman as white between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet in height, with a thin build. The man was possibly bald and was wearing dark clothing on the day of the murder.

Investigators asked that anyone with information on this murder call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at (915) 566-8477. Police said tipsters will remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward if their tip leads to an arrest.

  1. The wife died by multiple gunshots, and the husband survived? Sounds fishy. Investigate the husband, we know that generally the spouse is involved in something like this. Usually, lawyers are sleazy, bottom dwellers, so I will reserve judgment until a motive is floated forward. Maybe I watch too much TV. LOL

    1. The practice of law is full of decent dedicated people who work to help their clients in very difficult situations. Denigrating them only makes you look like a fool.

      1. Generally they are lazy greedy bottom feeders that would rather work out a quick deal that is usually not in the clients best interest. But yea there are some good ones that will work to help under privileged folks.

  2. Attorneys work 24/7, always on call. They are educated dedicated professionals who had enough discipline to stop their lives for at least seven years, if not more, to complete their education. Educate yourself and stop belittling things that you obviously know very little about.

  3. You are right Cara it is a 24/7 job. I don’t understand the haters on here like DanLanders (aka Ferocious2a and madmike, jeff allen, maga 2016, gee dubb and the other nut jobs. Just need to be negative 24/7.
