The case of a woman found dead nearly a week ago is now a murder investigation, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

The medical examiner has identified the woman as 49-year-old Kearie Ann Fischer.

The woman’s body was first spotted by a driver just before 10 a.m. Sunday, November 19 along the 8900 block of Southeast Loop 410, in the City Base area.

At first, officers thought that the woman had been shot but the medical examiner says that she was stabbed three times along with suffering head trauma.
