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.
