    They shouldn't have too much trouble ID'ing her if she was in her vehicle.

    It doesn't say that it was her vehicle, but I would suspect that this one won't need too much sleuthing.

    if it were her car, wouldn't they be able to match her using her DMV info? This rendering her identified? I'm
    Not very versed on this stuff.

    I'm worried

    I also just realized that they said if you know anything call the homicide division.

    Lets hope the car wasn't stolen because if that's the case then there won't be much (if anything) to tie the UID to the car she was in.

    We've had a couple of instances in the Boston area recently where bodies were left in stolen, leased, or abandoned cars. I don't know how common that is, though.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Ive actually noticed this as well. A lot of it happens in MA and TX these days it seems. Strange. Typically if one does decide to leave a body in or near a car they try to light the car on fire in order to destroy evidence so this whole scenario is confusing to me. It seems like these recent findings have been more deliberate and for attention on part of the suspect.

    This is the only woman--girl really--listed missing in Harris County since June in the Texas DPS website: http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch/mpch.htm She's 15. Sure hope it's not her...

    Oops, apparently I had a mistake on the filter. There's also:

    Perhaps they already know who she is and they have evidence of foul play and are waiting to see how long it takes for someone to report her missing.

    It's not unusual for LE to be deliberately vague, so that if there is foul play, and a perp starts discussing more about the person or vehicle than is publicly known, they can use that as evidence against that person.

    On the video on this report/link, it looks like the car is a black SUV of some sort. Could t directly link the video itself. Sorry.

    Her case has been handed over now to this homicide div.

    She's from Tomball.

    Looking up more info now from her hometown now that it's been provided.
