Female Skeleton Found, Bayou Body Count No. 160

Talk about throwing a wrench into a possible real-estate sale: Potential buyers of an empty Third Ward apartment complex discovered a female skeleton.

Sort of tough to explain away.

The remains were found in the 6300 block of Cullen Boulevard about 11 a.m. Monday, Houston police say. They "will be examined by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences to determine the identity and cause of death," HPD says.

The possible buyers of the abandoned complex first discovered a skull, HPD says. "A search of the property was conducted and nearly the entire skeleton of what is believed to be a female was found," officials said.

They're waiting now on results of the autopsy. Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
