Unidentified Female Found Abandoned with No ID, Bayou Body Count No. 128

A security guard patrolling a northeast-side office parking discovered the corpse of a female Friday afternoon, and now police are trying to identify her.

"There were signs of trauma to the female, who did not have identification on her," HPD says. She was found with a Scooby-Doo blanket and a comforter, and had "distinct lavender-colored fingernails with two gold striped accents on each nail," HPD says.

The discovery was made about 4:15 p.m. in the 600 block of the North Sam Houston Parkway East.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
