The verification on Wednesday that Hernandez’s body was discovered in an automobile sunk in a Pearland neighborhood retention pond raises more concerns among family members who have been looking for her since her sudden departure on April 17.
Her SUV was uncovered in the small body of water between Reflection Bay and N. Clear Lake in Shadow Creek Ranch on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office verified that the person discovered inside the automobile was Hernandez.
Authorities were unable to confirm whether or not foul play was involved. The investigation will now be led by Pearland police.
