HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Detectives found the body of a missing U.S. postal worker Friday evening and her her burned-out vehicle was located in San Jacinto County.

After dispatchers received a frantic 911 call around noon, the female victim’s truck was found on Harrell Road near Lake Livingston. The postal worker’s body was found around just before 10 p.m. on Morris at Harrell outside of Cold Spring.

Investigators said they believe that she was shot at a different location and then driven to where the truck was set on fire. Several bullet holes in the truck.

With the truck likely being the woman’s, it is common for postal workers in rural and remote areas to use their own vehicles for traveling and the distribution of mail.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is heading the investigation, combined with the efforts of the Texas Rangers and the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Office.
