Update on Unknown Female Found at 6600 San Felipe
May 22, 2009 - After receiving more than 200 calls from citizens with information, investigators in the Houston Police Department’s Homicide Division have identified the female believed to be the victim of an apparent assault and found in the 6600 block on San Felipe about 1:45 a.m. on May 3.
At this time, investigators are not releasing the woman’s identity and will not until she has met with family members. A photo of the woman is attached to this news release.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant P. Motard and Senior Police Officer C. Abbondandolo reported:
The victim was found walking along the 6000 block of San Felipe during the early morning hours of May 3. She suffered several minor head injuries and may have been assaulted. She was treated and released from an area hospital and has no memory of who she is or where she lives and may suffer from amnesia. Investigators were unable to identify her through traditional means and there are no reports of a missing person fitting her description.
Information obtained from a witness determined a vehicle, with out-of-state license plates, found in a parking lot in the 7600 block of Westheimer, belongs to the unidentified woman. Evidence found inside the vehicle provided investigators with a possible name.
Earlier this morning (May 22), investigators received a call from family members which further verified the woman's identity and developed information that the woman is 34 years old and was moving from New Mexico to Houston where she was starting a new job. The woman's friends and family are making arrangements to come to Houston.
The HPD Missing Persons Unit will be conducting a follow up investigation on this case.
No media interviews will be provided on this case at this time.
