Body of Lubbock Woman Found West of Slaton

The Lubbock County Sheriff's office is investigating what they believe is a homicide in the county. The body of 21 year-old Cynthia Joann Palacio was found off of County Road 7800 just west of Slaton.

An area resident noticed the body just before 7:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, and the victim's mother told officials they hadn't seen her since Sunday. Palacio's body was half-nude and no clothes were found. There were no signs of trauma to her body and no blood in the area. Officials believe her body was dumped there.

"We're investigating this as a homicide at the present time," said Capt. Bill Drewell with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Department.

The investigation is ongoing. The first step was identifying the victim. Now, they are following leads, but so far, there are no suspects. This is the second homicide in Lubbock County this year.
