Woman found dead; husband sought by authorities

Deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office are searching for the husband of a woman found dead in her rural Peñitas home on Sunday.

Sheriff’s officials responded to a home in the 39000 block of Brittney Street after someone reported the discovery, according to the sheriff’s official Facebook page.

The woman, identified as 30-year-old Adaly Tellez Johnson, was pronounced dead by a Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace, sheriff’s officials said.

Tellez’s common-law husband, Eduardo Gonzalez, 29, was named as a person of interest after they found “signs of foul play,” at the scene. 

Sheriff’s officials are asking the public for any information regarding Gonzalez’s whereabouts.
