Mother Found Dead Hanging by Rope on Dock

The death of a woman at a marina in League City is currently being probed as a potential homicide, local authorities revealed on Tuesday. The deceased, 30-year-old Giselle Salazar, a mother of four, was discovered hanging from a dock by a rope on May 31. The unusual positioning of her arm, which was found in an upright position without any visible support, has led investigators to believe that she may have been killed elsewhere and then moved to the dock.

While the cause of death is yet to be determined by the medical examiner’s office, police have identified two individuals of interest in the case. However, no arrests have been made so far. Salazar’s family, meanwhile, is vehemently denying any possibility of her committing suicide.

Esperanza Alegria, Salazar’s sister, expressed her conviction that her sister did not take her own life. She said, “My sister didn’t do this to herself. She didn’t commit suicide. We want whoever is responsible to face the consequences of their actions.” Salazar had been living on her boyfriend’s boat at the Wharf Marina since March. Despite being questioned by the police multiple times, her boyfriend has denied any involvement in her death.

Nathan Paz, Salazar’s brother, described her as a lively and charismatic person. He shared that Salazar had previously resided in Colorado but had moved due to an abusive relationship and was trying to start afresh. The family is now raising funds to cover her funeral expenses and to support her children.

As part of their investigation, police are reviewing nearly 2,000 security video clips. Despite the boyfriend’s claims that his surveillance cameras were not working, law enforcement authorities are determined to gather any evidence that may help solve the case.

The League City Police Department is urging anyone with information about Salazar’s death to come forward. The investigation is still ongoing as authorities strive to uncover the truth behind this tragic incident.
