Episode 4 Catrina Mowrey
On June 25th, 1985 police in Dallas, Texas received a phone call from a concerned citizen who reported an abandoned car in an alley with a foul smell coming from it; a car that had been in the same spot for days. When police investigated and opened the trunk, they found a dead woman inside the trunk. She was nude and wrapped in a sheet. The victim was soon identified as 24 year-old Catherine Mowrey, who went by Catrina. Much of Catrina's life in Dallas was a msytery to her family back home in Kansas. When Catrina's body was found, she was supposed to be back in Kansas visiting her family. The car was traced to Catrina's boyfriend who claimed to have no knowledge or involvement in Catrina's death. According to him, Catrina had driven his car back to Kansas to see her family. Police theorized that Catrina had taken her own life. They then shifted to the theory that Catrina had died of a drug overdose, but when no drugs were found in Catrina's system, they one again changed direction dismissing the death as 'undetermined' and essentially that's where investigation into Catrina's death seemed to stall. Due to decomposition, the medical examiner left the official cause of death as 'undetermined'. For years, Catrina's family fought an uphill battle to find out the truth behind Catrina's death; a battle that they still are fighting today.
In this episode, we are joined by Catrina's niece, Catrina Marshall, as well as death investigator Landen Wilson, and Jared Bradley of MVAC DNA extraction services.
