The Coast Guard is investigating whether a patrol boat was involved in the death of a woman whose body was found near the Brownsville Ship Channel.
A Coast Guard statement Wednesday said the boat was on patrol the night of April 23. The Mexican woman’s body was located nearby the following morning.
Authorities say lacerations across the woman’s right side and other leg injuries suggest she possibly was cut by a propeller. No cause of death was immediately released.
The Cameron County Sheriff’s Office will help with the investigation.
