Approximately one year ago, the Houston Police Department developed a DNA hit through CODIS on one of their sexual assault investigations. The DNA, in that case, matches the DNA in our case. We still have no named suspects. It is possible the suspect may be in the Houston area or traveling in between our communities. There may be additional victims along the way as well. If anyone has information on this case or can identify a suspect, please contact investigators with the Aransas Pass Police Department or provide us with a tip anonymously.
