Texas man charged with murder of prostitute

Texas authorities say a San Antonio man, who reportedly strangled a prostitute and let his friend have sex with her lifeless body before burning it, has officially been charged with first-degree murder.

Javier Hernandez, 29, allegedly confessed to an unnamed witness that he killed the woman and burned her remains in the garage next to his house.

The witness told authorities that Hernandez seemed to be full of “adrenaline” after committing the killing.

The suspect then let an acquaintance have sex with the woman’s dead body, according to KENS5.com.

Officers said the remains, which were discovered in a detached garage, was so severely charred that they haven’t been able to identify the victim and the only identifying marker that they have is a tattoo on her back.

San Antonio Police said the victim’s body was so badly burned, they have not been able to identify the woman, and have asked the public for help in naming the woman with the large tattoo on her back

Firefighters were dispatched to reports of a fire on January 22nd when the body was found. Officers used an arson-sniffing K9 to distinguish the substance used in starting the blaze.

Surveillance video showed a truck leaving a residence at about 5 am, only 30 minutes before the garage went up in flames.

Hernandez acknowledged that he owned a dark-colored car matching the same description but has denied any responsibility in the murder.

He remains in the Bexar County Jail.

San Antonio Police Officers have asked the public for assistance in identifying the woman by posting a photo of the victim’s tattoo.

The grisly picture displayed the burned remains of the victim’s tattoo that was placed above her buttocks.

She has been described as of Hispanic and White ethnicity, with breast implants, brown hair, and is between the ages of 18 and 35.
