Giddens told KSAT he believes the women took $850 from his son before killing him.


"He was a good guy," said Giddens. "He was no angel, but he was a good guy, just a normal person. I loved him very much."

Giddens Jr. had a mechanic shop on New Braunfels Street and was well known around town as "Big Fredo," KSAT reported in 2015.

"I go to the cemetery, and I talk to him, but it seems like it goes on deaf ears," Giddens told KSAT. "Somebody needs to step up and say something."
