SAN ANTONIO -- A woman whose body was discovered inside a northwest San Antonio park Tuesday evening suffered multiple sharp-force injuries, according to the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office.

Her death has been ruled a homicide, the office said Thursday.

The San Antonio Police Department confirmed the body was found at O.P. Schnabel Park, in the 9600 block of Bandera Road, on New Year's Eve.

The woman's family identified the victim as 24-year-old Lauren Michelle Bump, a senior at Harding University in Searcy, Ark. Bump graduated from O'Connor High School in 2007.

The police department received the report around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday. Their investigation is ongoing.

The family told KENS 5 that they are offering a cash reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. They urged anyone who can help to contact San Antonio police.
