Plano resident Sarmistha Sen, 43, had left for an early morning run before being found dead Saturday near the creek at Legacy Drive and Marchman Way in Plano, police have confirmed.
On Saturday morning, a caller reported finding what they believed to be a body laying down on Chisholm Trail, Public Information Officer David Tilley said.
While the manner and cause of death have not yet been determined, Tilley said police are investigating the case as a homicide.
Plano police also responded to a burglary call early Saturday morning and detained 29-year old Bakari Abiona Moncrief, an out-of-state resident who was in town visiting relatives from another city outside of Plano. He has been charged with burglary.
The burglary had taken place near to where Sen’s body had been found, Tilley said.
“Due to the fact that we had these close proximities and very close time frames of two offenses occurring, this individual became a person of interest in this murder investigation,” Tilley said.
Moncrief has not been charged in relation to the homicide.
