The body of a murdered high school student from Sugar Land has been returned to her parents for burial. The U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico claimed 18-year-old Elisabeth Mandala's body. The Kempner High School senior was found in a pickup in Nuevo Leon over the weekend. Two Mexican men were also in the vehicle, and an autopsy revealed all three died from severe blows to the head.

Police have not released a motive for the crime.
