FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fort Worth Police are investigating the murder of a 22-year-old woman found in an apartment behind a home in the 2600 block of Waits Avenue, about two blocks from the TCU campus on Monday afternoon.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiners Office said the victim, Molly Matheson, was strangled.
The medical examiner’s report said her body was found in a bathroom. Police said Matheson’s mother found her.
Matheson was not a TCU student. She attended Tarrant County College.
No word from police at this point on a possible suspect or motive but police do tell CBS11 they are working leads.
Some neighbors say they are on edge.
“That’s startling to hear,” said Elise Vidaurri, a TCU student and neighbor. “That’s not something that happens here. It’s crazy because as a young woman, who’s to say that couldn’t happen to me? There are a lot of unanswered questions.”
Dr. Allen Goben, President, Tarrant County College Northeast Campus released this statement on Thursday, April 13:
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic death of Molly Matheson, and offer our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends during this difficult time.
