On December 8, 2019 at approximately 2:00pm, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office received information about a possible deceased person behind an abandoned church located in the 600 block of Westridge in Spring, Montgomery County, TX. Deputies arrived and found a large plastic tote hidden behind a shed that contained what appeared to be the body of an unidentified female. Detectives with the Homicide-Violent Crimes Unit and Crime Scene Unit responded, and are investigating.
Based on information obtained during autopsy, the victim in this case appears to be a Caucasian female with dark blond or light brown hair, 50-60 years of age, approximately 5’-02”, weighing approximately 120 lbs. The victim has dentures on her upper jaw, and was found wearing a blue Croft and Barrow shirt (size small), a white bathrobe, and blue and white pants with a Samoan design.

Autopsy also revealed that the victim has undergone a hysterectomy, gall bladder removal surgery, gastric bypass surgery, and may have been a smoker.
