Daughter of Pflugerville murder victim Sharon Selman pleads for answers

It’s been three months and no arrests have been made in the murder of a Pflugerville woman who was shot outside of her home at the Century Stone Hill South Apartments. 

Lakeshia Craft says her mother Sharon Selman was walking to her car to go on a morning walk when a gunman shot and killed her. Craft said her heart sank into her chest when she got a call from detectives that day.

 “I just froze and I was like, is she OK? Is she OK? And they started asking you the questions and you know something very bad has happened,” Craft said. “It’s just unbelievable and we just don’t understand why. Like why her? She didn’t do anything to deserve anything so cold and so evil.”

Craft describes her mother as a kind, gentle, God-fearing woman who was active in her church. She went to Sunday service, helped with Sunday school, and was part of the church’s hospitality committee. Not knowing why she was killed haunts Craft and her family.

“This could be anybody, that is why we are coming to the public, this could be you, your sister, your mom,” said Melva Jones, Selman’s sister. “That is why we want whoever that person is walking around free thinking that they got away. They have not got away because I know somebody is going to come out and speak up for us."

Pflugerville Police Department investigators are working closely with the family to find Selman's killer. Crime Stoppers has offered a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and the family has since received anonymous donations from the community.

“It’s very touching and it just confirms everything we’ve been saying,” said Craft. “My mother really left her mark on this earth and because of the type of woman she was, people remember that and are touched by that and they want to help. We have faith in the detectives in the police department to get the case solved and we have faith in God.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS (8477). The Selman family has set up a fund to assist in the investigation.
