Police searching for person of interest after missing teen’s body found in ditch

Police say she was naked and said initially there were no obvious signs of trauma to her body.

SAN ANTONIO — A missing teen is now at the center of a homicide investigation after her body was found naked in a ditch early Wednesday.

San Antonio Police found her body near the 7600 block of Dell Oak Drive near Krueger Middle School, not far from her northeast-side home around 12:30 a.m.

Now, one person is facing questions about her death. Police say she was naked, and initially there were no obvious signs of trauma to her body. They later said the signs of trauma were there.

Because of the details surrounding her death, it’s being treated as a homicide.

Police say her family reported her missing just before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night.

The 17-year-old girl reportedly left home with a man from the neighborhood and never returned. Her family went looking for her and calling her phone, which someone found in a nearby ditch.

Officers searched the ditch and found a blue jacket, then found the missing girl under a bridge.

Police tell us they have detained the guy she was last seen with. They are working to find out what happened and how she ended up dead.

This is a developing story.
