The death of a lady whose body was discovered charred on the side of the road in a posh Austin suburb has Texas authorities investigating.

On the morning of September 29, firemen responding to fire calls discovered the death of Melissa Davis, 33.

A lighter was found nearby by detectives, according to local media KXAN. After being dispatched to the location, a police K-9 discovered a butcher knife that smelled like a lighter, according to the authorities.

“The knife was placed with the decedent in an attempt to destroy the evidence with the fire,” according to Austin police.

But an autopsy revealed Davis had been burned alive and had no visible signs of physical trauma or knife wounds.

Police have issued a search warrant for Davis’ missing automobile, a blue 2016 Toyota 4Runner with the Texas license plate KYV3765, since there aren’t many leads.

Friends and family are holding out hope that they can achieve justice for Davis, who vanished after going to the nearby Apple store to get her phone mended, even though there isn’t a suspect in jail yet.

Ellie Simmons called Davis “a soul sister” and claimed the free-spirited friend enjoyed going on trips with other people.

“Actually, one of our other friends and I had fantasies about opening a hostel in Costa Rica with an art station,” Simmons said to KVUE. She cherished art.

Another close friend, David Haisman, expressed his shock at Davis’s passing and mentioned that before she passed away, she had given him a painting of a bird flying toward the sun.

“I still feel like my heart is breaking. Like I’m being stabbed. Like I’ve been stabbed and I’m bleeding out slowly,” he told the local outlet.

The Austin Police Department did not comment on the case, but said the investigation remains ongoing.

There is currently a $1,000 reward available for anyone who provides a tip which leads to an arrest.
