DALLAS -- Police in Dallas are asking for the public's help after a boy discovered the body of a woman on the side of her home Wednesday morning.

According to authorities, the boy found the body in the 1300 block of Kellogg Avenue as he walked to school at about 7:21 a.m. Dallas police later identified the woman as Maria Romero-Villegas. Police say the victim suffered multiple stab wounds.
