Austin — The Associated Press is reporting; investigators say homicide led to the death of a woman whose body was found floating in an Austin-area lake.
A statement from the Travis County Sheriff's Office says the body of 22-year-old Veronica Navarro of Spicewood was found Wednesday in Lake Travis, wrapped in a tent and weighted.
Sheriff's spokesman Roger Wade says a search of her home found evidence pointing to a suspect who was later found trying to enter Canada. The 27-year-old man has been held on a warrant accusing him of felony evidence tampering.
