An 18-year-old girl who disappeared on her way to a church was found murdered in her crashed minivan in Dallas, Texas, one day later.

Zoe Hastings left home on Sunday evening to attend a class at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But when she didn’t show up, her family called police to report her missing, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Hastings was found the next morning after someone called 911 to report a car that had crashed into a creek not far from the church, WFAA reports.

Dallas police said Hastings did not die in the crash, but instead died of “obvious homicidal violence.” They are still searching for a suspect in her murder. Authorities did not comment on how she may have died.
