Body found near a local motel and lounge

A woman is found dead near a local motel and lounge. The victim is a 19-year old black woman who was found in the 6800 hundred block of I-40 East. 
Police tell us they were called out here around noon today after a man walking his dog discovered her body. They say when they got here, the marks on her body made them believe she had been murdered. 

"The only thing we know for sure is she was last seen alive on the 13th. We have no history after that," say Sgt. RandyTenBrink.

Police tell us they know the identity of the victim but are not yet releasing her name. Her next of kin have been notified.

Police also tell us the victim was known to have stayed at this motel several times. Anyone with anymore information on this crime is asked to call the Special Crimes unit at 378-9468.
