Washington was found at about 7 p.m. on Aug. 21, 2018 by a Houston police officer working an approved extra job at the Linda Vista apartments, located in the 5500 block of De Soto Street. During a welfare check, the officer found Washington dead on the living room floor.
An initial investigation determined Washington was last seen in the early morning hours of August 18, and a missing persons report was filed on August 20. Police said further investigation and additional evidence identified Gulley, who was in a dating relationship with Washington, as a suspect in this case.
