There is still no cause of death report available, but the mystery — who was this decomposing body found floating in White Rock Creek? — is solved. Dallas Police Department report that the deceased is Eric Hall “a 39 year old Black transgender female.”

They continue: “This investigation is still ongoing, and the cause of death is still pending. As more information is available for release it will be done accordingly,” police notify the public via press release.

On May 12 at about 7:30 p.m. Dallas police responded to an emergency call at 6900 block of Merriman Parkway regarding a body floating in the water at White Rock Creek. Officers discovered Hall in a severe stage of decomposition, so it took some time and help from the public to figure out the name of the victim.
