DALLAS -- Police are investigating the murder of a woman in North Dallas.

Officers were called to 6104 Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway at about 4 p.m. Wednesday.

They found Carla Patricia Flores-Pavon, 26, dead from homicidal violence. A witness said they saw a man leave the victim's apartment just before she was found.

Emergency crews took Flores-Pavon to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Since Flores-Pavon was a transgender woman, police are investigating whether her murder was a hate crime, but said Thursday there's no evidence at this point to support that.

If you have any information, call police at (214) 283-4856.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information called into Crime Stoppers that leads to the arrest and indictment for this crime. Call Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS (8477), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
