There's new information on the El Paso woman who was found murdered in a desert area last month. Medical examiners say Gloria Marmolejo was strangled. In the autopsy report NewsChannel 9 obtained, it says Marmolejo was found with a plastic bag over her head and both her hands and a foot were covered in brown paper bags.
As we reported, Marmolejo was first reported missing in July after she came back from vacationing in Arizona and did not show up for her birthday party. Less than a week later, her body was found in the desert near Santa Teresa elementary school. Police do not have a suspect in the case.
If you know anything about this case and can help bring this killer to justice call Crimestoppers at 566-TIPS.
