Recently we posted about missing teen Adriana Coronado. Today we received an update to our previous post.
Authorities say they have identified the body found in west Houston earlier this week as missing Katy teenager Adriana Coronado.The 14-year-old disappeared last Saturday. An Amber Alert was issued early Monday morning.
Walker County Sheriff Clint McRae told Eyewitness News a bracelet found on the body was their first clue the remains might be the missing Mayde Creek High School student.Friday night, shortly after the confirmation, family members gathered at her aunt’s Katy-area home. Cries of grief could be heard every time someone opened the door. An uncle fought back tears as he arrived. Others said very little. “She’s my cousin, yes.”
On Wednesday, a gardener found a decomposing body near Wycliffe and Mayfield in west Houston and called police. Investigators used fingerprints to identify Coronado. She had been shot multiple times.
Because Adriana’s body was found in Houston, the Houston Police Department is now in the lead in the investigation into her death, according to McRae. He says the Walker County Sheriff’s Office remains the lead in the investigation into Caesar Coronado’s death, but that multiple agencies are coordinating when it comes to both investigations.
If you have any information regarding these murders, you’re asked to call the Walker County Sheriff’s Office at (936) 435-2400, or Houston Police.
