The New Braunfels Police Department continues to investigate the May 21st, 2015, homicide of 23-year old Samantha Miranda. Detectives continue to follow up on all leads and are still seeking tips from the public.
Detectives are looking for tips about the crime itself, which happened on May 21, 2015, at approximately 12:45am in the 900 block of I-35 South, along the southbound access road. An initial call for shots fired led officers to the sidewalk in front of Lone Star Fiberglass Pools where they discovered the 23-year old victim who had suffered a fatal gunshot wound.
The ongoing investigation has revealed that a dark-colored (possibly black) sedan was seen leaving the scene of the homicide moments after the crime. The exact make and model is unknown, but detectives believe the car to resemble a late-model Dodge Charger, Nissan Altima, or similar vehicle.
