Detectives discovered the body of missing Baytown woman Crystal McDowell two weeks after her disappearance. The Chambers County Sheriff's Office says her ex-husband Steven McDowell, 44, is charged with murder.
The 37-year-old mother was last seen in Baytown on August 25, a day before Harvey reached Texas. Her body was discovered on Saturday, September 9 in a wooded area of west Chambers County.
Texas EquuSearch looked for McDowell for more than two weeks, on foot and ATVS. They released the following statement: "We want to thank the diligent and highly skilled professionals with the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Rangers, because they, along with the team of Texas EquuSearch made every committed effort possible to find Crystal. We ask that everyone please keep Crystal’s family, especially her little children in your thoughts and prayers during this most tragic and devastating time of their lives."
