A family spokeswoman said Sunday that investigators believe human remains found in a canal near Rio Hondo belong to Nahomi Rodriguez, who vanished in mid-July after leaving work.
Rodriguez's aunt Enedina Sanchez — a spokeswoman for the family — said investigators with the Harlingen Police Department met with the family on Saturday about the human remains found near Rio Hondo.
Dental records matched Rodriguez, and investigators also found some of her personal belongings with the remains, Sanchez said.
“Right now our plans are to just gather as a family and provide our condolences and support for her parents,” Sanchez said. “It’s just hard because we have gone through deaths in the family but nothing like this."
While Harlingen police Chief Jeffrey Adickes declined to comment on statements released by the family, he said the department would hold a news conference Monday with other law enforcement agencies.
