The severed heads of two unidentified women have investigators searching for a possible link between the gruesome findings.
The severed heads were discovered 150 miles apart in plastic bags near lakes and RV parks.
Volunteer cleanup crews discovered the first severed head in a large black plastic bag on March 24 on the rocks of Lake Houston, the Houston Chronicle reported. Forensic analysis released on April 5 by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences described the victim as a white or Hispanic woman, between young adulthood and middle aged, with brown or reddish hair around 3 to 4 inches.
The second head, found about 150 miles away near Calcasieu Lake in Louisiana, was discovered on March 1 by a prison inmate doing cleanup in a grassy marsh near the lake, also in a small plastic bag, the Chronicle reported.
FOX News reports that forensic analysis found that this victim had similar traits of the other, including brown or reddish hair, around 10 to 12 inches, and being between 25 and 40 years old.

The officers are looking for a man in his early to mid-20s who was seen about 2:30 to 3 p.m. throwing a black plastic bag off the bridge near where the head was found, two weeks prior to the discovery.
The man, described as having short dark brown hair with long bangs, was seen getting out of the front passenger side of a teal or a bluish green Chevrolet Silverado extended cab truck. He is about 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-8 tall and has light skin. The truck was rusted and appeared to have been in several wrecks. The back left passenger window was missing and was covered by what looked like cardboard.
Police have acknowledged that the cases have strong similarities and the Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana and the Houston Police are sharing information to determine if there is a link.
Let’s hope the police catch this monster ASAP.
