Police and Crime Stoppers are looking for the people behind the brutal murder of a 36-year-old woman whose nude and badly beaten body was found near a Pasadena bayou New Year's Day.
Edlyn Villegas had gotten into a verbal altercation at a nightclub late the night before, police say.
Her body was found under the Vince Bayou Bridge at 100 Queens Road. "Villegas was frequently known to walk home via Perez Street and Queens Road," Crime Stoppers says. "The location of her body was on the same route."
Her clothing and cellphone were found near her body, which was discovered about 11:30 a.m. She had left a nightclub in the 1400 block of Spencer Highway in South Houston between 1:30 and two that morning after the altercation with a female, Crime Stoppers says.
Results of a sexual assault exam are pending.
