COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – College Station police have a person in custody in connection with the death of a woman found Tuesday in her apartment.
On Wednesday night, CPSD tweeted that Christian Gomez Gonzalez, 22, of Lewisville, had been arrested on a charge of Tampering with Evidence. This announcement came after police spent the day searching a landfill in Grimes County.
Police are also now calling the death of Angie Crystal Saucedo a homicide.
Saucedo was found deceased by her roommate inside their apartment in the 2000 block of Holleman Drive W near Harvey Mitchell Parkway, said police.
They also confirmed that investigators searched a landfill in Grimes County Wednesday that is linked to the investigation.
Several officers, including two in hazmat outfits, were seen Wednesday morning at the BVWSMA landfill located on Highway 30 just east of the Navasota River.
A spokesman for CSPD said the search is related to the death investigation but no other details could be immediately released without possibly interfering with, or jeopardizing, the investigation.
“Generally, hazmat suits are often used by investigators at landfills due to the hazardous nature of such places,” said CSPD Officer Tristen Lopez.
