At about 10:00 am this morning, the body of an unidentified black female was discovered in the 1200 block of Presidio Avenue. Officers responded and found the body of a woman whose description matched that of Ms. Kelley.
Her body was taken by the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office where this afternoon it was positively identified as that of missing person, D’Lisa Kelley. The case is now being investigated as a homicide.
Dallas Police Missing Persons detectives have little to go on in the disappearance of D’Lisa Kelley (B/F 24), of Dallas. According to reports, Ms. Kelley left a friend’s home at about 6:30pm on Friday to attend a wake but never showed up. According to a witness, Ms. Kelley appeared to have made an unintended phone call at some point after she left for the wake and sounds of an argument could be heard in the background.
No one has heard from Ms. Kelley since then. Ms. Kelley is the mother of a small child and according to friends and family, her disappearance is uncharacteristic.
The latest description of the clothing that Ms. Kelley was seen wearing was a black long-sleeved sweater, leopard print tights and a denim vest. She has long hair but it was last pulled up into a bun. She does not have a vehicle.
Police are asking that anyone who has information as to her whereabouts, please call Dallas police at 214.671.4268. See the downloadable flyer below for additional information.
