An autopsy report has revealed new and graphic details about the death of a 20-year-old woman whose body was found in Combes back in March.
The report shows that Brisna Mireles died after being shot five times and that she had alcohol, Xanax, marijuana and cocaine in her system at the time of her death.
The young Harlingen woman TMs body was found covered in ants off U.S. Highway 77 in Combes back on March 31st.
Suspect Aroldo Humberto Cadriel remains in custody for her murder and an unrelated child sex crime.
The autopsy shows that Mireles had been shot five times: twice in the cheek, once in the chest, once in the back and once above her genitals.
According to the report, the bullet fired above her genitals remained lodged in her back.
The bullet fired into her chest ricocheted around inside and hit the right atrium and ventricle of her heart before exiting.
Mireles had scars from previous cuts on her forearms but they did not appear to be related to her murder.
Court records show that 65-year-old Cadriel claimed to have a sexual relationship with Mireles and had become frustrated with her.
Records from another unrelated case show that Cadriel got an underage girl pregnant several years ago.
