LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A body found along a Lakeport highway Sunday was that of 46-year-old Gina Williams, family members confirm to our news partners at KYTX CBS 19.

Williams' family says investigators visited their longview home and informed them of the news.

At this time, family members are asking to remain private while they grieve.

Investigators say the body belonged to a black woman in her 40s or 50s, who had short black hair, and weighing between 160 pounds and 180 pounds. The body had signs of trauma, and a preliminary autopsy determined that the cause of death was homicide. They won't release the nature of her injuries, in order to protect the investigation.
