The Cameron County Sheriff’s Department has released a composite sketch of the body of a woman found last October on South Padre Island near Beach Access No. 6.

Sheriff Omar Lucio on Monday said investigators analyzed the woman’s remains and dental records to create the composite image. Lucio hopes the public will be able to identify the woman from the sketch to aid the CCSD in its investigation.

The corpse of a woman reportedly clothed in green shorts and a purplish-colored shirt, with no identification on her person, was discovered around 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, by a passerby who reportedly observed coyotes eating something in the sand. The individual then alerted the Cameron County Sheriff’s Department of the situation.


The Texas Department of Public Safety – Texas Rangers Evidential and Facial Identification Division has provided a clay reconstructive photograph of a female with similar characteristics resembling that of the body recovered from the beach. The female victim has her lips and eyebrows cosmetically tattooed. The female was wearing blue/plaid shorts with pink stars and a sleeveless purple shirt.  The female is about five feet, 100 to 120 pounds with black hair.

Lucio said all inquiries about the case should be directed toward the Cameron County Sheriff’s Department by calling (956) 550-6700. If someone from the public has information about the case, they can also call Crimestoppers at (956) 350-5551.
