DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – One week after she went missing, a pregnant Dallas woman was found dead about two miles from the location where she was last seen.

On the morning of March 14 the body of an unidentified black female was found in the 1200 block of Presidio Avenue. The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office later positively identified the body as that of D’Lisa Kelley.

After days of searching for the woman Dallas police Lieutenant Max Geron said, “This is now a homicide investigation.”

Kelley, who was also mother to a young son, was last seen late in the afternoon on March 7.  According to police, the pregnant 24-year-old headed out from a friend’s home to attend a wake, but never showed up.

One person reported to authorities that Kelley made an unintentional call on her cellphone some time after leaving the friend’s home. Sounds of an argument could be heard in the background. The call disconnected and Kelley could not be reached after.

Authorities have not released Kelley’s cause of death.

Police are now asking that anyone who may have seen anything suspicious on March 7 or has information about Kelley’s murder to contact Dallas police at 214-671-4268.
