One person has been arrested and charged after a woman was found dead and an infant was found safe at a Houston-area home, Austin police announced Friday morning.
According to police, the suspect has been charged with two counts of kidnapping and tampering with a corpse.
Police have not identified the suspect or the two victims in the case as they await DNA testing for confirmation, but Tammy Broussard says police told her that a body found in a trunk in Jersey Village Thursday night was likely that of her missing daughter, 33-year-old Heidi Broussard, the report said, and her 3-week-old granddaughter Margot Carey was found safe in a home.
The baby found is “healthy” and is currently with Child Protective Services, police said.
KPRC reported the Harris County Medical Examiner’s office was seen at the home. The FBI also confirmed it was at the site to investigate, but no further details were released.
