An investigation is underway after a woman’s body was found in the trunk of a car following a brief chase that ended Saturday morning in downtown Beaumont, reports ABC 13.
A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper noticed a white Honda speeding eastbound on I-10 in Chambers County around 7:45 a.m.
