Authorities have recently released a sketch of the suspect that gunned down Dr. Mark Hausknecht, the man who treated former President George H. W. Bush's heart almost 20 years ago.


65-year-old Hausknecht was shot and killed last Friday, July 20, 2018, at around 9 a.m. on his way to work at the Houston Methodist Hospital, but the identity of the suspect is still a mystery.

On Saturday, the Houston Police took to Twitter to release a sketch of what the killer might look like, hoping that people who live nearby have gotten a glimpse of the man's face before he left the scene.

Hausknecht was riding his bike down the street and so as the killer, who was then spotted traveling west on Southgate Boulevard on a light-colored bike.

Authorities have already analyzed several surveillance footages from businesses located in the area and discovered a clip in which a man can be seen fleeing in a mountain bike.

Art Acevedo, Houston Police Chief, revealed on Saturday that the crime didn't make any sense and that they were struggling to comprehend what led the man to kill Hausknecht.


According to the police, the man is around 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches and of slender build. At the time of the murder, he was wearing a gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts, sunglasses and a baseball cap.


The authorities are also asking for the help of the community, especially those who live along Hausknecht's path to work. They are encouraged to check their security videos and try to see if the doctor was being followed that morning.


The late 65-year-old was seen as a true role model, having practiced medicine for almost 40 years, specializing in cardiovascular diseases. In fact, he was so good, that he was the one chosen to treat Bush for an irregular heartbeat in 2000.

The former President was very impressed with Hausknecht, considering him a 'fantastic cardiologist and a good man,' adding that he would always have him and his loved ones in the Bush family's prayers.
