  1. What really happened in this town when I move here 22 years ago from Longview Tx I thought was a great place to live and it was a that time, Now it looks like a ghetto place with Licor Stores in every shopping center, pawn shops, payday loans, title loans, sorry but who wherever running this town is doing very bad Job, I’m sure they don’t live in Lewisville of course not .

  2. Same here. Lewisville was such a friendly safe town. I moved here 10 years ago. Now crime has exploded. Please lets us pray for Shah his family and Lewisville.

  3. Yeah, when we got here in 1992 it was a nice place, I’m from the hood, but now this is the hood, time to move again. I live on Corporate, now you have 20 cars in front of every house, Bizarre’s Buses, People walking around everywhere, Motels, Like Budget Suites, People pushing Ice Cream carts, overcrowded schools, GANG’S ETC. it’s defanitely changed.

  4. that person had to be waiting for him to come out of his store. I hope police looks for the people behind this crime. I hope that Texas police/detectives work hard to find the killer for his wife and kids.

  5. I used to live in the apartments right across the street. Lewisville is hands down the I safest place I have ever lived and that’s saying a lot since I was in the army. I would rather live in Baghdad than lewisville

  6. Can they even tell what kind of a car that is? Or the color? Would be good to know. The only thing you can really make out is his black Vans.

    • I am his nephew/ cousin to his kids… the car was Suresh’s car. Police did try to find evidence but everything was covered so the car just went back to the kids.. since they are now in college..
