IRVING, TX -- It was a Friday night gone horribly wrong for one local woman. Police say she’d been out drinking with a friend and left Angel’s Grill & Bar on Walnut Hill at around three in the morning.

While her friend went to get their car, a stranger in the parking lot offered to watch the intoxicated female.

“She had to go find the valet to get her car, so it was anywhere from two to five minutes before she got back," said James McLellan, the public information officer with Irving PD.

When she got back, the woman and the man were gone.

It was six hours later and 10 miles away when a work crew at the Hunter Ferrell Landfill in Irving discovered her, half-naked inside a cardboard box.

“At first they didn't know whether she was alive or dead, but during the phone call to dispatch she showed some signs that she was alive,” McLellan said.

Irving PD is waiting on rape kit results to determine if the victim was sexually assaulted.

“Generally speaking, she was not able to provide us any meaningful information as to what happened,” said Officer McLellan.

It’s the same story when it comes to her friend’s description of the man who was last seen with the victim.

“The only information she was able to offer is a very generic description,” said McLellan, “It was a Hispanic male, perhaps in his late 20s to early 30s, but that's all she could remember.”

It’s a terrifying story that could have been much, much worse.

Just remember, if you’re going to get trashed, make sure you have a way to get home safe.
