Teen arrested in woman's murder in Sealy motel room


The body of Lisa Camille Land was discovered Friday afternoon at the Best Budget Inn on N. Circle Drive. Police say she appeared to have been beaten.

At about 8pm Monday, Sealy police working with the Texas Rangers arrested a 15-year-old boy. They say the teen had recently moved from the East Bernard area and was living at the Best Budget Inn with a family member.

Land's family said the 30-year-old was living at the motel because that's all she could afford while she tried to make ends meet working at a barbecue restaurant.

The teen, who is not being identified, is being held at the Fort Bend County Juvenile Facility.
