Months later, Dallas couple's murder case remains unsolved

Posted: Updated:

Thursday marked three months since a double murder took place in southeast Oak Cliff, and Dallas police have not yet identified a suspect.

Dallas police responded to an apartment in the 5900 block of Highland Hills Drive on Jan. 20.

There, they found 28-year-old Chaunthina Mills dead on the living room floor. The body of her boyfriend, 38-year-old Dwight Ray, was found outside the front door on the porch.

Both had gunshot wounds to the upper body.

"They just didn't kill two people -- they killed two families," said Beverly Lee, Mills' mother.

The couple had a baby together, Urijah, who is 15 months old. He was in the apartment when the couple was killed.

Sadly, police say he was trying to wake his mother when officers arrived on scene. Lee says the baby still has nightmares from the incident.

"Dwight was a great guy, she was a great person, they loved one another and they died together, but they left me that beautiful child," said Lee.

Lee is now left with Uriah's upbringing.

"I'm doing grandmother-mommy things now, but it's OK," said Lee.

What's not OK is that the killer or killers are still free.

Lee hopes someone will do the right thing and call Dallas police.

"She was a great mom, great daughter; she was someone's best friend, she was someone's aunt, and she was a sister of a Dallas police officer," said Lee.

Ray also had a family member who is a civilian employee with Dallas police.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward in this case. Anyone with information is asked to contact Dallas police.
