Nigel Green left the woman's remain in a ditch. He admitted to police he killed her.
The victim was reported missing by her mother on June 30, 2016.

She was taken to the Women's Shelter of South Texas that night, said Susan Treviño, the shelter's chief operating officer.
Castellanos left the shelter the next morning, Treviño said. Castellanos let her case manager know she was getting texts from Green and "she needed to get out of town," she said. She told staff her mother was going to pick her up and left.
Her mother, Robin Giddens-Castellanos, previously told the Caller-Times Green told Castellanos that "if she ever told the cops (about the abuse), he had friends (in Corpus Christi) that would take care of her."
Assistant Police Chief Mike Alanis said police could have arrested Green the night of the attack without a warrant if they had found him.
Police searched for Green at the couple's home on Herndon, but did not find him. A detective was assigned the case later that same day and began gathering evidence to seek a warrant.
Castellanos changed her mind on June 14 and told detectives in a voice mail that she did not want to pursue the case against Green, according to the affidavit. She said in the voice mail Green had left town and "is going to leave her alone."
"Due to victim's lack of interest to pursue this case ... this case is now closed," according to the detective's supplement report.
According to Bowers and commonwealth’s evidence, Gravely had injuries including extensive hemorrhaging in her throat area; a cut on her forehead; black eye; small pinpoint hemorrhages under the skin on her right side of her face and both eyes; cut and bruise on her lip and mouth, and bruises, scrapes or contusions on her collar bone, abdomen, arms and legs.
