Cause of death released in murder of Pasadena mother found under bridge


Edlyn Villegas Munoz, 36, was found nude and beaten under the Vince Bayou Bridge on Queens Road in Pasadena on New Year's Day. Her husband told police they had been at ShowPalace Cabaret where he worked. He said he walked home and that his wife followed him, but that he never saw her. She was found dead later that day.

Her husband, Camilo Zermeno, says he's struggled to explain what happened to his children. He says his wife had been a full time student, just graduating from San Jacinto College. She was planning to pursue a career in real estate.

The autopsy shows Munoz was beaten on the head and neck.

There is still a reward in the case of up to $5,000. If you have any information, you can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
