Police release surveillance video of woman found dead in northeast Houston fire

Police are hoping newly-released surveillance video will lead to information about the death of a woman whose body was found last month after a grass fire north of downtown Houston.

Around 6:30am on February 22, firefighters were called to extinguish a fire in the back of a vacant washateria in the 1900 block of Gano near Hogan. After they put out the flames, they discovered the body of a woman beneath a piece of plywood. She was badly burned and already dead.

Police have identified the woman as 40-year-old Anjelica Garibay but they're still waiting on an autopsy report to determine exactly how she died.

Now, police have released surveillance video in hopes of getting more information about her death. It shows Garibay walking alone then meeting up with an unknown male in the same area a few hours before the fire. Investigators believe Garibay had just left the Castillos Bar in the 1400 block of Lorraine.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
