Sheriff Javier Salazar said during a press conference Wednesday that the remains belong to Norma Pacheco, 39. Salazar said Pacheco was a “free spirit. Unfortunately family would go weeks without seeing her, which is probably one of the main reasons why she wasn’t reported as missing.” While Salazar said investigators don’t know how she died, he believes Pacheco’s death was a homicide. Pacheco’s remains were at Government Canyon at least a week before they were found, Salazar said, but police could not connect her remains to the location where she was found. “The investigation continues as we look to find out who did this and why,” Salazar said. When the remains were found, officials thought they might belong to San Antonio businesswoman Andreen McDonald, who has been missing since March 1. However, the remains did not match her description, investigators said. Last week, BCSO released a sketch of the woman based on her remains in hopes of identifying her.
