Texas homicide investigation underway after possible casket discovered buried under property near Houston

FuneralA Texas woman, who is being referred to as Mrs. Soza, purchased a plot of line adjacent to a cemetery in Crosby, TX last year. On a visit to the property she discovered a “fresh mound of dirt,” and on a subsequent visit she found lanterns and fresh flowers.

She confirmed that this piece of land was her property and confirmed with the cemetery that it was not a misplaced grave. Mrs. Soza left a note in the area requesting that whoever left the flowers contact her, but has received no response. 

The Sheriff’s office has conducted an examination of the site and confirmed that an object, consistent with a burial vault or casket, is located below the surface. Based on the flowers and proximity to the cemetery, the Sheriff’s office believes it was either accidentally buried on the wrong side of the property line or that it was put there intentionally. 

Rather than immediately digging up the casket and searching the contents, authorities are hoping someone will see the story and come forward to identify their loved one.
