Detectives seek man for questioning in Northwest Side trail death

November 2, 2018

A man seen entering a convenience store on the Northwest Side is being sought for questioning in the fatal stabbing of a woman Tuesday morning.

Mia Lutzenberger, 20, was reported stabbed in a call to San Antonio police at about 5 a.m. at the Leon Creek Greenway.

Officers found her body 100 feet from the trail entrance on Border Brook near Ingram Park Mall, police said.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying the man seen in a photograph released by police Thursday evening.

The photograph shows a man walking into a gas station at 7 a.m. Tuesday at 7305 Culebra Road.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the homicide unit at 210-207-7635.

Chief William McManus said Tuesday that Lutzenberger had been stabbed multiple times.

McManus said four witnesses — two men and two women — and Lutzenberger knew each other.

The five had been in the park before the curfew was lifted at sunrise, and none were at the trail to run, said McManus.

“What they were doing there at least makes you wonder,” he said.

McManus said he believes Lutzenberger was not randomly attacked, and that the witnesses’ stories did not add up.
