On June 21, deputies were called to the 10000 block of North Eldridge Parkway near Highway 290 and Highway 6 at around 9:52 a.m.

Upon arrival, they found people performing CPR on an unresponsive woman. Emergency personnel arrived and took over, the woman was never revived.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Sheriff Gonzalez said the woman was found “with some signs of foul play.”

Family members told deputies they grew concerned after Gonzalez and Gallegos failed to show up for a family function the previous day.

After repeated attempts to contact both of them by phone, family members drove to the couple’s apartment and found it locked and secured. Using a spare key, deputies said the family entered the apartment and discovered Gonzalez in a bedroom unresponsive. They were unable to locate Gallegos and noticed one of the couple’s vehicles, a silver Nissan Altima with the Texas license plate number LJN-3031, was missing.
