TULSA, OK (KSWO)- Tulsa police say they believe a woman found dead in a dumpster behind a restaurant may have been homeless. The body was found in a dumpster behind Las Americas restaurant, located along 3rd and Zunis, around 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. She was discovered after employees found blood outside their front door and followed drag marks to the dumpster.

Police identified the victim as 43-year-old Amy Robertson.

Police said there were no visible gunshot or knife wounds. Investigators say they believe foul play was involved in her death. Detectives say she appeared to have been badly beaten. They are waiting on a cause of death to be determined by the Medical Examiner's Office.

Authorities said the victim was seen arguing with her boyfriend late Monday night. Investigators named Gumercindo Jurado, the victim’s boyfriend, as a person of interest in the case. Police say he and Robertson had physical altercations in the past. Jurado was arrested on a public drunkenness charge, but there was not enough evidence to arrest him for murder.
