Cherish Gibson, 25, was found on the same block as Robinson roughly two months later, on June 24. She had been fatally stabbed, the police department said in an earlier statement.

On Saturday, a third woman was found 2 miles away, near the Trinity River, police said. Her manner of death was ruled a homicide. She has not been publicly identified.
