    DALLAS (KRLD) - Friends of a Dallas woman are trying to come to grips with her murder.


    Homicide detectives were called to a Preston Hollow neighborhood Monday and found 59-year-old Leslie Baker in a car in her driveway. She had been shot and killed.


    Baker was the Director of Marketing at Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery in Plano. Her longtime friend Susan Stoler says she was known and liked by everyone.


    "Leslie was full of life and always made you feel so comfortable when you were with her. If anyone didn't deserve this, it was Leslie," Stoler says. 


    The president of the surgery center sent the following statement:


    "We're shocked and heartbroken by Leslie’s senseless death. I personally have known and worked with Leslie for many years, and her tragic passing is very difficult to understand and accept.


    Leslie was part of the Texas Health Resources family for many years and had been in her current role since 2007. She quickly became a trusted, valued member of our family. During her time here, she was a key member of our administrative team, known as an intelligent, fair, and compassionate leader who kept the care of patients as her guiding light.


    During this tragic time, we send our heartfelt prayers, condolences, and support to her husband and beloved children. We ask that everyone keep Leslie’s family in their thoughts and prayers as they navigate through this tragic time."


    A $5,000 reward is being offered in the search for Baker’s killer. Tipsters should call 214-373-TIPS.
