Another woman found strangled downtown

Unidentified Female, Bayou Body Count No. 243

Less than two weeks after a homeless person was found strangled to death near downtown's Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, another woman has been found dead "from neck trauma" at the old Downtown YMCA.

The victim, whose name has not yet been released, was found about 5:10 p.m. Sunday, police say.

"Houston police officers, responding to a reported public lewdness call in the 600 block of Pease, arrived to find the victim's body lying in a stairwell of a nearby building," HPD says.

There are no witnesses at this time. Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
