Kirby, TX, Mechanical Shop Owner Found by Brother Stabbed to Death Outside His Shop

A business owner in Kirby, TX, was found on March 13, dead from stab wounds, behind his auto repair shop, Absolutely Affordable Repair off Ackerman Road. The victim was identified as Gary Weise, 43. According to Sgt. Michael Alonzo, Weise’s body was found by the victim’s brother behind Absolutely Affordable Repair. He had been stabbed several times and his throat was slashed. Alonzo said they were following up leads but they hadn’t identified any suspects.

“We’re still looking into the case,” Alonzo said. “We’re just going to go where the truth leads us right now and just see who basically wanted him dead.”

Family members reportedly hadn’t seen or heard from Weise for a few days. Around noon on March 13, the brother went to the repair shop to look for Weise and found his body outside by the back corner of the building. Investigators said it appeared the body had been outside for some time but they hadn’t determined when the crime occurred. Weise ran the shop alone and lived less than half a mile away, Alonzo said. No arrest has been made.
