Woman found shot to death near Interstate 35

GEORGETOWN, Texas (AP) — Authorities say the body of an 18-year-old woman was found shot to death and dumped in an isolated area off Interstate 35 in Central Texas.

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office says the body of Tynesia Brown was found Monday near Jarrell, about 50 miles north of Austin. Officials believe she was killed elsewhere.

Detectives say that Brown was from Bedford in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. They believe she was traveling up and down Interstate 35 with another woman and a man.

Brown was last seen by her mother on Friday at their home.
