Texarkana, Texas Police say the body of 51-year-old Gloria Fowler of DeKalb, Texas, was found Wednesday morning in a homeless camp in Texarkana. Authorities are investigating.
Fowler was found unresponsive near the 100 block of Leila Street. Around 1:30 a.m., other residents of the camp discovered the woman and attempted to revive her by starting CPR. They also sought help from a nearby fire station. When officers arrived she was already deceased.
