Officer Bolmanski with HPD Major Assaults and Family Violence says a witness had scheduled a meeting with the victim but hadn't heard from her and became worried.
That's when the witness went to the woman's apartment building and asked the apartment manager to let her inside.
Police say she appeared to have been beaten by an unknown suspect.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
