Marilyn Sue Gillespie, 58, Bayou Body Count No. 36

No one had seen Marilyn Sue Gillespie for days. Then, not surprisingly in this homicidal town, she turned up dead.

Police say they fielded a call Friday morning about a possible dead person at 3333 Cummins Lane, near Lakewood Church. And sure enough, when officers arrived they found the 58-year-old Gillespie in her home, apparently riddled with stab wounds.

Gillespie was last seen alive three days earlier, police say. Her car, a 2006 green Subaru Tribeca with Kansas plates, is missing from the parking lot. Police are continuing to investigate.

Anyone with information about this case can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
