The mystery of a partially-dressed woman who rang the doorbell of a Texas home in the dead of night and disappeared took a sordid turn on Wednesday when it led police to a scene of violence and death. She also had what appeared to be broken restraints attached to each wrist.

The woman was captured on the surveillance camera of the house she rang in the Sunrise Ranch area of Montgomery, Texas.

But the sheriff's office said Wednesday that the woman was a 32-year-old living with her boyfriend in the same subdivision and had not been reported missing. According to police, however, her boyfriend killed himself after her story went viral. The woman, barefoot and wearing a T-shirt, appears to have restraints on her wrist, police said.

A second unidentified resident in the neighborhood told Click2Houston: "We were dead asleep in our beds".

The clip cuts out as she reaches for a door handle and it later emerged that she went on to ring other doorbells on the street. [When my husband] walked outside no one was in sight.

Montgomery Country Sherriff's Office said it was investigating the "suspicious incident", the Evening Standard reports.

"I have come to believe that this is my sister due to a tattoo that she has of the Libra scale on her arm", Rachael told Daily Mail.

The sheriff's office says the woman is safe with family. He said they had both lived at the same address.

Authorities have not yet been able to link the woman to any missing persons in the database and have gone door-to-door interviewing people in the neighborhood.

Authorities conducted a door-to-door search of homes and businesses and circulated images of the woman.

In a statement, police said, "Numerous citizens in the state and outside have sent missing persons flyers suggesting the women in the video is a missing person from their area". "Unfortunately the times have changed from yesterday so you have to be very careful".
