It's the kind of thing that sounds like it could be a mob hit ... or possible a pissed-off athlete.

But whatever the case, Houston police are trying to figure out who and why someone stuffed a dead body into a locker that was found in a field just south of George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Riders with Texas EquuSearch, which provides horse-mounted search and recovery for lost and missing persons, came across a female body on Friday morning along the 6300 block of Greens Road. The locker, police say, looked like someone had dumped it in the field.

Equusearch says that the woman's name is Becky Hamilton, 52, of Huffman. She is the sister of a long-time volunteer for the organization.

Detectives say they are waiting on the results of an autopsy to determine exactly how she died.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
