Skeletal remains that were found in Pearland in March were identified as belonging to Ramona Dumas. Known as simply “Mona”, Dumas had been missing since 2008.

Back on March 19, skeletal remains were found at a property in the 4600 block of Dixie Farm Road. Dumas was last seen wearing a blue shirt, Old Navy flare jeans and white Reebok tennis shoes.

Those remains were sent to the University of North Texas for DNA analysis; they were later identified as belonging to 48-year-old Dumas, a black woman who had been missing since 2008.

According to investigators, Dumas was last seen on Oct. 25, 2008. She was leaving a residence in the 4600 block of Maggie Street in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Houston. Her death has been ruled as a homicide.

A forensic anthropologist estimated she died one to three years ago. Investigators now search for answers as to how Dumas died. Anyone with information about the death of Dumas is asked to call Detective Steve Weaver at 281-997-4154.
