Child texts grandma after finding mom dead on floor; foul play suspected, police say

Death reported in 8900 block of Maverick Draw

SAN ANTONIO – A woman was found dead Thursday after her 8-year-old child found her on the floor and texted her grandmother.

The grandmother arrived and found the woman, 26, dead at a home in the 8900 block of Maverick Draw, according to San Antonio police.

The woman lived in the home with her two children, ages 5 and 8.

Foul play is suspected in the woman’s death, police said. Her identity and cause of death have not been released.

While police say there have been no other calls to the house except for a theft, neighbors said many times the victim could be heard arguing with a man.

”Two days ago in the morning, I hear them arguing. And it’s not it wasn’t unexpected because he’s a hothead,” said Brian Lawson, a neighbor.

”He was very upset with her, like, ‘Why are you doing this?’ Like, ‘I’ve been doing all this for you... kiss my a**,” said Andres Rosado, a neighbor.

Investigators said they are working on leads, but they have not named anyone as a person of interest. But they believe that will change very soon.

”Investigators are just starting to dig in, and I’m confident that we’ll have this case closed sooner than later,” said San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.

The children were removed from the home and placed with family.
