Hutcheson was last seen alive in Channelview on Friday. Texas EquuSearch volunteers found her body about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Hutcheson's husband, Sam, said his wife went for a walk and did not come back home.

"I said, 'Where are you going?' She didn't respond and she looked at me," Sam Hutcheson said.

"Her depression level has been going up for probably the last two months," Sam Hutcheson said. "Stress has been building because of our daughter."
