Woman found dead in Texas after bloody trail discovered from bus stop to parking lot

A woman was found dead in a Texas parking lot on Sunday after authorities followed a bloody trail from a bus stop bench to the body, police said.

The body of the woman, who was not identified but believed to be homeless, was discovered about 11 a.m. in a parking lot in downtown San Antonio, FOX29 San Antonio reported.

"We were looking at it a little bit earlier, I think, as a suspicious death, but it appears that it's probably a homicide," San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said. "It was a violent act. Don't know what type of act it was, whether it was blunt force, or whether it was a stab; it was a violent act."

No weapon was recovered, according to FOX29. McManus added that surveillance video will be reviewed in the investigation.
