Police identify Downtown Austin homicide victim

  • Text size: + -

The death of a woman found in a downtown Austin park has been ruled a homicide.

Police say a parks officer spotted the body of 34-year-old Valerie Louise Godoy near a bench in Duncan Park Friday morning. An autopsy revealed her death was caused by “significant blunt force trauma.”

Investigators are now looking for a suspect and any information witnesses may have.

"We do know that Ms. Godoy at times was homeless here in Austin, but we don't think that she was real familiar with this particular area, at this specific park,” Sgt. Scott Ehlert said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide tip line at (512) 477-3588.
