Incident at 1927 Mansfield

April 3, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal stabbing of a woman found at 1927 Mansfield about 11:20 a.m. on Sunday (Apr. 2).

The victim has not yet been identified and did not have any identification on her. She is black, believed to be in her 30s and has very short Afro style hair. The woman was wearing a gold rope chain with a cross pendant on her neck. She had what looked like a gold wedding band on her left hand and a ladies ring on the pinkie finger of her right hand. The woman also had an ace bandage wrapped around her left knee. Investigators said she might have been sexually assaulted, but they're awaiting autopsy results from the Harris County Medical Examiner's office.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant T.R. Hernandez and Officer X. Avila reported:

Members of the Pine Grove Church of God found the woman's nude body in a wooded area adjacent to the church property. A pair of black sandals and bloodstains were found in the church's back yard, indicating the woman was likely attacked in the back yard and then moved back into the woods. She had suffered stab wounds to her throat and neck.

There are no known witnesses or suspects at this time.

Anyone with information on the victim's identity or suspect(s) in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
