HOUSTON—Police discovered a woman’s body inside a motel after responding to a disturbance call Friday evening.
A manager at the Best Budget Inn at 1241 N. Circle Dr. describes the victim as a 23-year-old waitress who had been living at the motel in the weeks before the incident.
He arrived at her room, number 16, to collect rent on Friday and saw a man quickly pull back the blinds. No one answered the door, so he left.
When he returned a few minutes later, the door was cracked and he saw the victim inside. Investigators say the woman appears to have been beaten.
Texas Rangers had not released the victim’s name as of Saturday.
