Houston Woman's Body Found in the Trunk of a Car Involved in a Texas Police Chase!
The body of a woman was found in the trunk of a car involved in a police chase yesterday morning. According to reports, 35-year-old Victor Charles Campbell, of Fresno, was attempting to evade police when his car hit a concrete barrier.
"Officials said the car chase began in Chambers County. Around 8 a.m., the department received a call regarding a reckless driver, who was driving a white car on Interstate 10 in Beaumont. A DPS Trooper saw a white Honda car speeding down I-10 and attempted to pull it over near FM 365.
Campbell pulled to the right as if to stop, but immediately sped off, officials said.
As the driver approached Milam Street in Beaumont, he struck a concrete barrier and lost control of the vehicle, which came to a rest near mile marker 855, according to officials."
As a standard procedure police searched Campbell's car and found a woman's body in the trunk. The woman was later identified as 28-year-old Briana Teirra Johnson of Houston. An autopsy was ordered and her death is now being investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Ranger Division in cooperation with the Houston Police Department’s Homicide Division, the Beaumont Police Department, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Campbell was transported to the Jefferson County jail following his release from the hospital, where he was initially taken for treatment after the crash. He faces charges for felony evading arrest, driving while intoxicated, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse, investigators said in a release. Additional felony charges are pending as this investigation continues.
At this time there is no public information on how Campbell and Johnson knew each other, is he is responsible for her death and, if he is, why?
