Deputies Try To ID Woman Found Dead Near Texas Interstate

HALLSVILLE (October 8, 2013)—Harrison County authorities are trying to identify the body of a woman found near Interstate 20 in East Texas, which some drivers mistakenly thought was a mannequin.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Office has asked for the public's help to identify the partly clothed body, which discovered Monday afternoon near Hallsville.

Lt. Jay Webb says the body does not have any visible wounds.

An autopsy was ordered, but investigators are treating the death as a homicide.

Webb says two truckers who pulled off the road, about 2 miles south of Hallsville, to inspect their trucks’ tires reported finding what they at first thought was a mannequin.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the woman was killed elsewhere and then her body was dumped.
