SAPD's homicide unit is investigating human remains that were found on the southeast side of town Tuesday, according to the Bexar County Sheriff's office.
On Wednesday, investigators identified the remains as those of a 39-year-old Hispanic woman.
On Tuesday, an investigator was following a lead that sent him to the 12800 block of Old Corpus Christi Road.
At the scene, he noticed "animal activity" near the area and was eventually led to the remains.
A 39-year-old San Antonio mother went missing last week on August 3.
Police have not confirmed whether the two cases are related.
No other information is known at this time.
