March 07, 2008 - Houston police are awaiting autopsy results on a woman found in the 11300 block of Rampart about 6:20 a.m. on Thursday (March 6).

The victim’s identity and cause of death are pending an autopsy by the Harris County Medical Examiner’s office. The victim is described as a petite white female, 25 to 30 years old, with a tattoo on her left ankle and two tattoos on her lower back.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C. Mosqueda and Officer L. Benavidez reported:

A motorist in the 11300 block of Rampart saw what she thought was a mannequin wrapped in a blanket in the roadway. When she stopped to check on it and pulled back the material, she discovered the victim gagged and bound inside a bed sheet. Police and paramedics arrived and determined the victim had suffered blunt trauma to her head. Although she was not responsive, the victim was alive and transported to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital in critical condition. She died of her injuries later that evening.

Investigators believe the female victim was possibly left at the location sometime between 4 a.m. and 6:20 a.m. on Thursday. Anyone with information in this incident is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
