|Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the fatal stabbing of a woman found at 6550 Hillcroft Street about 8:30 a.m. on May 28.
The suspect, Walter Michael Oliver (b/m, 28), is charged with murder in the 185th State District Court. A booking photo of Oliver is attached to this news release.
The victim, Leondra Addis, 41, suffered multiple stab wounds.
HPD Homicide Division Detectives J. Caten and M. Barrow reported:
Officers responded to a report of an individual found deceased inside a dumpster at an apartment complex at the above address. A tenant made the discovery and then notified the apartment complex front office. The victim was found wrapped in a tarp or hard plastic wrapping.
An autopsy determined the victim’s identity as Ms. Addis, who resided at the apartment complex.
