Molly Matheson, a 22-year-old Forth Worth resident, was found strangled to death in her apartment just two blocks away from Texas Christian University’s campus.
Matheson, 22, was found unconscious by her mother Tracy in her home on the 2600 block of Waits Avenue in Fort Worth, Texas. Police were called to the scene in Fort Worth around 4:30 P.M. on Monday, April 10, where Matheson’s death was later declared a homicide by strangulation. Authorities were said to have been on the scene through the night and were still at the home on Tuesday afternoon investigating.
At this time, it is unknown whether her death was the result of a random attack or if it was committed by someone she knew.
Police say they do not have a suspect identified at this point. But detectives are working around the clock to find answers for a heartbroken family and a worried neighborhood.
Crime scene investigators spent all day and into the night Tuesday processing the scene, while those who knew Matheson tried to process her loss.
Though she lived near TCU, Matheson was not a student there. She spent time studying at the University of Arkansas and graduated from Timber Creek High School in the Keller Independent School District in 2012.
Matheson, who was not a student at TCU, attended the University of Arkansas until 2015.
At this time, police have not released any information about a possible person of interest.
