HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say a pregnant woman who was cleaning a strip club has been discovered slain following a robbery.

Police on Monday sought the public's help in finding the killer of 27-year-old Maria Lucrecia, who was about five months pregnant.

Police say Lucrecia's body was found at the business Saturday afternoon when her husband couldn't reach the woman. A manager contacted police, who located the victim. The strip club was closed at the time of the slaying.

Police spokesman John Cannon says one or more suspects apparently broke into the business, killed the woman and stole about $1,000 from a cash register.

Lucrecia died of blunt force trauma to the head.
