Lubbock police know the identity of a woman found dead in Northeast Lubbock. Twenty-nine year old Monica Isabel Adams was found this morning by a man checking on an oil jack in a field near North MLK Blvd. and Bradley.
Police pronounced her dead on the scene this morning. They said she suffered blunt force trauma.
The crime scene is near where Selena Kuykendall's body was found in April 2007. That case still has not been solved. Police have not linked the two cases, but are not ruling out the possibility that they could be connected.
Police think Adams was left in the field around the time of the recent heavy rainfall, either during it or right before. That rainfall makes the investigation difficult. Police had to ride ATVs to access the crime scene, and they didn't remove the body until 1:45 this afternoon.
Lt. Jon Caspell said, "Rainfall can make it more difficult. It tends to wash away what can be some pretty vital evidence, but it certainly doesn't make it impossible. Scenes like this tend to be pretty involved."
Police could not tell if the field was the original crime scene, or if the body was transported and left here.
If you have any information about the last known whereabouts of Monica Isabel Adams, you are urged to call Crime line at 741-1000. Calls can remain anonymous.
