AUSTIN (KXAN) - Police are still looking for anyone with information about a 65-year-old woman found nearly naked on Congress Avenue.
Homicide investigators identified the woman as Rosemary Lorraine Borges, who lived a short distance away at an apartment complex located at 1718 Woodward Street, near St. Edward's University. It is not clear how she ended up at 2713 S. Congress Ave., and police are asking anyone with information to call them.
"She was, what we would consider, a low risk victim. She was not a person that would engage in activity that would place her in danger. She was generally described as minding her own business, a sociable person that stayed with her circle of friends where she lived," said Sgt. Hector Reveles with the Austin Police Department.
Police says she was legally blind and used a walking stick, and that she was last seen alive by neighbors at her apartment complex.
"Every time we had a gathering outside she would always come, hang out with us," said Calvin White. "She was a nice lady. We used to do barbecues outside. She'd give the kids candy, all kinds of different stuff. She was a sweet old lady. I can't believe that would happen."
A bystander found Borges at 10:35 a.m. Sunday on the grounds of the apartment complex on Congress Avenue -- showing obvious signs of trauma to her body. Witnesses could see the woman naked, with the exception of socks.
While Borges did show signs of trauma, detectives are not indicating how she may have died.
Austin Police Department Homicide detectives are asking anyone with information about Borges' whereabouts that day or who may have seen something to call the Homicide Tip Line at 512-477-3588, Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS or text "Tip 103" + your message to CRIMES.
Tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 if your tip leads to an arrest or charges being filed.
The case remains under investigation by the APD Homicide Unit.
