On January 23, Haltom City Officers responded to a report of a person lying in the breezeway in front of the caller's apartment.

Officers arrived on scene and found Munsie lying on the floor of the breezeway with signs of trauma.

According to a police statement, Haltom City Fire Department and MedStar Ambulance personnel arrived, but she was pronounced deceased at the scene. Haltom City Detectives and Crime Scene personnel were called to the scene to conduct their investigation.

Speaking to Fox News, Haltom City PD Sgt. Eric Peters said law enforcement had tracked down the two males by speaking to local residents and examining surveillance videos.

He said: "The only money she may have had on her would've been tips, but that's even a rarity now because like I said the contactless delivery nowadays that everybody does, everybody does tips through the app, they don't do tips with their money."

Haltom City Police added: "The Haltom City Police Department would like to remind everyone, especially delivery drivers, to be vigilant in your surroundings in your everyday activities and when in unfamiliar areas. Call the police department to report any suspicious individuals or suspicious activities."

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Munsie's husband and three children.
