HARRIS COUNTY—Police have identified a female body found naked on the property of a mulch company in northwest Harris County.
The body of Elizabeth Carol Lewis, also known as Elizabeth Carol Jones, was discovered Tuesday afternoon in the 12200 block of Cutten Road.
Workers at Living Earth, a landscaping supplier, discovered her body toward the back of the property as they were clearing out trees.
Harris County homicide detectives and the Medical Examiner’s Office left the scene after more than six hours of investigating near the Willowbrook Mall.
Officials said evidence gathered so far points to foul play, but a cause of death has not been determined.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office believes her body may have been ditched at the scene about a week ago.
Investigators said the body was discovered on a chunk of land recently purchased by Living Earth.
It’s unclear if she had been buried or if she was lying on top of the dirt.
