Mystery Woman in Shackles Who Rang Doorbells at Night in Texas Neighborhood Identified

A mystery woman who was caught on camera in the middle of the night repeatedly ringing a doorbell has been identified, officials in Montgomery County, Texas, said.

The department said it is not naming the woman because she is a domestic violence victim.

The woman is safe and with her family, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

CNN affiliate KPRC reported that a barefoot woman apparently visited at least five houses in the Sunrise Ranch neighborhood in the early morning of August 24. The incident alarmed residents, leading law enforcement to investigate what they described as a “suspicious incident.”

Police released surveillance footage of the woman approaching a home. The grainy video, captured around 3:20 a.m. on August 24, shows a woman walking up to a house and ringing the doorbell. She’s wearing a T-shirt, and appears to have some sort of shackle hanging from her right wrist.

“I hope she’s OK and we get to the bottom of it and it’s no longer a mystery in our neighborhood,” Chris Geros told CNN affiliate KTRK.

On Wednesday, deputies responded to a home in Sunrise Ranch after receiving a call about a man who made “suicidal comments,” according to a statement. They found a 49-year-old man dead from what is believed to be a single gunshot wound.
