AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a woman whose body was found in Lake Travis with a gunshot wound to the head had been reported missing by her boyfriend, who wrote that he had put her body in the water before killing himself.

The Travis County Sheriff's Office says the body of 27-year-old Shameka McGriff of Austin was found Thursday night in the lake near Austin. The medical examiner's office said the apparent cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head.

The sheriff's office said McGriff had been reported missing on April 10 by her boyfriend. Authorities investigating her disappearance believed she was not alive and had been searching the lake. Detectives had interviewed the boyfriend, but before they could investigate further he killed himself April 17 in San Antonio.
