UPDATE: Woman Found Dead at Arbor Terrace Apartments Identified

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - The young woman found dead overnight at Arbor Terrace Apartments has been identified.

Ruth Gonzalez, 24, was found dead, and police say there were no obvious signs of foul play.

The investigation continues.


Officers were dispatched Thursday night to an apartment complex in the 1100 block of Fitch Avenue in reference to a deceased person, Odessa Police said.

According to Cpl. Steve LeSueur, a young woman was found dead at Arbor Terrace Apartments.

Authorities have not released her name, age or cause of death.

Detectives remained on scene for more than three hours and concluded they have "no reason to suspect foul play."

"This is currently being investigated as an unattended death," LeSueur told NewsWest 9.

Neighbors peered through windows and gathered in the parking lot to inspect the source of the flashing police lights.

"Police are all over the place and we have no idea what's going on," one woman said. "I heard there's an [armed suspect] on the loose and that's who they're looking for here."

Officials confirmed that was not the case and indicated Arbor Terrace residents face no threat linked to the unattended death.
