HARRIS COUNTYA woman’s body found badly decomposed in a suitcase in north Harris County on Sunday has been identified.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said 39-year-old Allison Lozano of Spring was found in a suitcase in the 22000 block of Imperial Valley Dr. near Parramatta Lane, near the North Freeway and FM 1960.

Investigators said a couple who was walking their dog flagged down a deputy and advised him that they found what they believed to be a deceased person on the roadway.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Sgt. Jason Brown said that Lozano’s body was so badly decomposed that it was hard for them to initially make out her gender.

Deputies are asking anyone with information about Lozano’s whereabouts in the weeks prior to her disappearance to contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit.
