Woman found dead in Balch Springs

Posted: Updated:
BALCH SPRINGS, Texas - Police are investigating the second murder at a Balch Springs apartment complex in less than four months.

Officers found the body of 51-year-old Lorrie Schumann inside her apartment at the Quail Village Apartments on Quail Drive.

Co-workers apparently asked for a welfare check after she didn't show up for work on Wednesday.

Police say Schumann was strangled, and they're treating the case as a homicide. They said the apartment door was closed, but not locked.

Neighbors who spoke to FOX 4 said they are considering moving because this is the second murder at the complex this year.

In April, 24-year-old Erika Soto-Garcia was apparently attacked after dropping her husband off at work. She was the mother of two small children.

No one was arrested for Soto-Garcia's murder, but police do not believe the two cases are related.
