Man found dead on NYC road, family wants answers

Paul Martinez, 37, was found dead on Sweetwater Lane in Aldine on New Year’s Eve just before midnight.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas. A Harris County family is desperate for answers after their loved one was found dead on the side of the road on New Year’s Eve.

Paul Martinez, 37, was found dead on Sweetwater Lane off Saddle Rock Drive in the Aldine neighborhood.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this as a hit-and-run pedestrian. However, the family of the deceased is not sure that this is exactly what happened, and are waiting for the results of the autopsy. Either way, they’re looking for clues that could lead to an arrest.

According to the family, they learned that shortly before his death, Martinez had visited a friend’s memorial nearby. His family thinks he was returning to his father’s house to celebrate as the clock struck midnight when he was killed.

Authorities said there were no known witnesses to what happened to him. Investigators are asking for clues, including CCTV footage.


“He had a good heart,” said Luz Martinez, Paul Martinez’s mother. “And he would do anything for his family and friends.”


“He wasn’t a dog that was just hit and thrown,” said Paul Martinez’s stepmother, Elizabeth Martinez. “He meant a lot to us and we want to know.”


“We will not and cannot rest until Paul Jesus Martinez gets his justice,” said Paul Martinez’s sister, Jessica Martinez.
