BALCH SPRINGS, Texas -
Police in Balch Springs are investigating a murder outside an apartment complex after the body of 24-year-old Erika Soto-Garcia was discovered there on Monday.
Police say someone called to report hearing shots being fired early Monday morning at the Quail Village Apartments, in the 12200 block of Quail Drive. Then, a short time later, someone spotted Soto-Garcia’s body.
When Balch Springs police responded to the scene, they found the body near the bushes in front of building K.
Investigators say they’re trying to determine who made the 911 calls, and say they came from somebody in the apartment complex.
Residents at the scene told FOX 4 they suspect Soto-Garcia had just gotten back from dropping her husband off at work.
Relatives say Soto-Garcia was the mother of two small children, and that she and the family lived at the complex for several years.
They cannot fathom why anyone would want to hurt her.
