    TX - Brittany 'Pearl' Chappell, 30, brutally slain, burned, Fort Worth, 28 Sept 2015

    Not a lot of information at this point.

    Hopefully they will be able to identify this person.

    A woman's body was found burning in a Fort Worth field near Lake Arlington late Monday night, officials say.
    Officers were able to quickly put out the fire, but the body was burned beyond recognition.

    The fire started just off of the roadway, and officers patrolling the area saw it burning. As they approached the flames, a body was found in the burning field. According to authorities, the victim was burned beyond recognition.
    The victim’s name has not been released. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner will identify the individual and determine an official cause of death. The medical examiner’s office said that, while not entirely sure, it appears that the victim was a woman.

    FWPD has released new information and is looking for help to identify this woman.

    FWPD Homicide -- 817-392-4340

    Police say the 5-feet-5-inch tall woman weighed about 118 pounds and had a metal stud in her left nostril.

    She also had distinctive tattoos — a heart knot on her right lower leg and a flower with stars on her left ankle.

    She appeared to have brown hair and was wearing sparkly mauve toenail polish. Her lower first molars had root canals on both sides, police say.

    A woman was arrested early Friday in connection with the beating and suffocation of a woman whose body was found burning in an secluded area near Lake Arlington.

    Alexandria Flores, 22, was arrested without incident at the Magnuson Hotel in the 6700 block of Fossil Bluff Drive, police said. Police had received a call that Flores was at the north Fort Worth hotel.

    Flores is the fourth person arrested in the death of Brittany “Pearl” Chappell, 30, a mother of two who was reported missing to Bedford police on Oct. 9.

    Albert Martinez Jr., 29, Jeremy Myers 23, and Flores are accused of capital murder in Chappell’s death. The fourth suspect, Brian Kendrick Thompson, is accused of tampering with physical evidence by helping to dump and burn Chappell’s body after her death.

    She said the three smoked methamphetamine together....

    RIP, Brittany.

    Three jailed, one sought in kidnapping and killing of Tarrant County mother

    [...]
    Albert Martinez Jr., Jeremy Myers and Alexandria Flores are accused of capital murder in the death of 30-year-old Brittany “Pearl” Chappell, whose body was found burning late Sept. 28 in far east Fort Worth.

    According to court documents, the trio is accused of holding Chappell against her will, then beating and suffocating the mother of two with a bag and shower curtain.

    [...]
    Flores claimed that her boyfriend had met a woman at a game room in east Fort Worth and brought her to the apartment that Flores and Martinez Jr. share.

    She said the three smoked methamphetamine together and that she later found her boyfriend yelling at the woman with a pistol in his hand.

    [...]
    Flores said her boyfriend remarked he had to kill Chappell after the crying woman said, “If you let me go, I’m going to tell.”

    Flores said Chappell begged for her life, looking Flores in the eyes and pleading, “I just want to see my kids.”

    Flores said Martinez Jr. cut off Chappell’s clothes while Myers helped hold her down.
    She said Martinez Jr. then ordered her to put a trash bag over Chappell’s head or she could end up like the victim, the affidavit states.

    Flores said Martinez Jr. hit her when she did not do it right.

    She said after the victim managed to rip a hole in the bag, Myers got a shower curtain from the bathroom. Flores said she then wrapped it around Chappell’s head until the woman died.

    She said the trio then put Chappell’s body back in the closet. The next day, the three and another man, whom police later identified as Thompson, loaded the body into an SUV and burned it in a rural area.
