APD: Sheterica Brewer's body found

Posted: Updated:
Alexandria, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Investigation continues in the death of an Alexandria woman reported missing.

According to the Alexandria Police Department, Sheterica Brewer, 27, was reported missing on May 30, after her car was found burning on Duhon Lane in Alexandria.

Police said they found her body Sunday morning, but they have not released the location. Police are treating her death as a homicide pending an autopsy.

Police, as well as Brewer's family, are searching for answers. On Friday, Brewer's cousin pleaded for any bit of information that would help bring the missing woman home. 

"We need her. If ya'll hear anything, and I mean anything, if you see a track on the ground, call us. We're out here," Carmesha Leach said. "This ain't Sheterica. She ain't gonna leave her kids for nothing in the world."

But Sunday morning brought bad news.

"There were no immediate signs of forced trauma, but that will all be determined in the autopsy," APD Lt. Bruce Fairbanks said after police found her body. "Any death investigation that we view as unnatural, is always investigated as a homicide until an autopsy or other investigative means clears the case otherwise."

Brewer's family said they last heard from her early Friday morning, and she never showed up to her job at Dmax Wheels and Tires on Lee Street in Alexandria.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.

APD also said they have no apparent connection between Brewer's death and the murder of another woman, Pamela Carnahan, a few weeks ago.

A suspect has not been arrested yet.

    Tomorrow, expect a hot day with a big dome of high pressure moving right overhead. High temperatures will most likely climb into the mid-90s with mostly sunny skies and light southwest winds. With sinking air over the region, atmospheric pollutants and allergies will get banked up along the surface with no where to go. For this reason, pollen counts will be increasing tomorrow and air quality will most likely go down, so keep that in mind if you have breathing problems or allergies.Changes wi...More >>
