According to ABC13, a City of Houston public works employee found the naked body of a woman by Katy Freeway at 8AM Saturday morning, having spotted her feet beneath some bushes while driving past.

On Monday police confirmed the remains were Sharkey’s. They believe the body had lain there overnight.

Investigators have yet to reveal the cause of death; however they said her body displayed no obvious sign of injury. They have not indicated whether they believe the death was an accident or foul play.

Making a tearful appeal for information on Saturday, her mother told the local news site the last time she had spoken to her daughter was on Wednesday, when they discussed plans for her to fly home for Christmas.

“(Thanksgiving) was a busy day on her end and our end and so it was just one of those passing, type of ‘Love you’ things,” she recalled. “Then Friday… honestly, Friday got away. (It was a) busy day. We never talked, and then she went missing Friday night… and I have not seen her or heard from her since.”

She said her daughter’s husband Tom Sharkey had called on Saturday to say she was missing. “That’s when, of course, any parent goes into full panic mode, and we have been ever since.”

She said that while she didn’t speak to Alexis every single day, she always had her phone with her, and always answered whenever she called… but this time she was being sent to voicemail.

“She has a close-knit group of friends and they’ve never known her to disappear, and I’ve never known her to not communicate when we reach out to her, ever.”

Alexis moved to Houston with her husband in January. Because of Covid restrictions, her mom hadn’t seen her since last Christmas.

Since the tragic news broke, Alexis’ husband has been posting throwback pictures of the two together, including one of her in her wedding dress.

“I just want to say this! While some of you were posting on social media helping us locate my world! And we appreciate all your help, Love and support!” he wrote. “Others were waisting time talking about other things. Basically crap talk! And if my wife would of seen this she would be disappointed in your actions! You all should be ashamed of yourselves!” [sic]

“I have been assisting the deputies and making phone calls to fine out what happened to my wife. Next time…. stop and think! And realize! You don’t know it all!” [sic].
