On Sunday, November 3, 2019, a property owner was checking their fence line when they discovered partial skeletal remains on an adjoining property. Austin police officers, homicide detectives and Travis County Medical Examiner’s office investigators were called to the scene. The size and density of the woods limited the initial search.
On Wednesday, November 6, 2019, the Travis County Search and Rescue team was called in to conduct a more thorough search of the area. The team was successful in locating additional remains.
Information developed indicates the woman's body had been there for several months. The cause and circumstances of her death have not yet been determined.
