Dallas police found the dead body of an unidentified woman lying on the street with “deep cuts to her neck and chest” Sunday morning.
Responding to a call at the corner of Hunnicut Road and St. Francis Avenue, near Lakeland Hills Park and the East Dallas Skatepark, officers located the corpse around 5:40 a.m. July 31.
During the early investigation, homicide detectives identified Andre Woods Jr., 22, as a possible suspect in the murder. When officers attempted to pull over Woods’ vehicle, the suspect crashed the car and had to be transported to a nearby hospital for care.
After a medical examination, Woods was arrested by Dallas police and charged with murder.
Woods allegedly admitted he had arranged to meet the victim for sex but then got into an altercation with the woman, giving her a bloody nose. Despite this, Woods claimed to have no involvement with her murder.
The victim’s name had yet to be released at the time of publication, and the medical examiner was working to verify the victim’s identity.
The investigation is ongoing, and Dallas police have not released additional information regarding the crime.
