The Dallas Police Department has confirmed the identity of a body found in a burning vehicle on Monday as 22-year-old Sara Hudson, a white female. Generally, we do not publish the names of victims or anything about their identity for protection, but at the request of family we are providing additional details to aid the police in their search for the suspect.
As we originally posted, the Dallas Police Department and Fire-Rescue Department responded to a vehicle fire on Monday evening at around 7:35PM in the 5600 block of Alta Avenue. This occurred in the Lower Greenville area of Dallas.
After the vehicle fire was put out, firefighters located a deceased body inside the vehicle, now identified as Sara Hudson.
“The victim’s death appears to be a result of homicidal violence,” says Dallas PD, who say her body was found in a white 2013 Chevy Tahoe vehicle. The vehicle was hers.
The family of Ms. Hudson has reached out to DFW Scanner for help as they, and the police, work to get answers and locate the person responsible for this incident.

She was going to get drinks with friends after work on Monday, and have dinner with family that evening, but when she didn’t show up to either events, her family contacted police. Here is a photo of Sara:
