Police have released a graphic image of a tattoo from a prostitute’s body after her charred remains were found.

A man has been arrested after it was alleged that the woman was strangled to death.

Javier Hernandez allegedly then allowed his friend to have sex with her corpse before burning her body in a garage next to his house in San Antonio.

Police said that Hernandez confessed what he had done to an unnamed witness, according to mySA. The witness said that he was full of ‘adrenaline’ after allegedly killing the woman.

Firefighters were called out on January 22 and investigations using a sniffer dog suggested that it was arson.

They found a corpse among the ruins and a truck was filmed leaving the house at around 5am, half an hour before the fire started, according to Ken5.

Hernandez, who is in Bexar County Jail, said he owned a vehicle of a similar description but denies murder.

Police want help in identifying the woman who is white, of Hispanic origin, between the ages of 18 and 35.

The tattoo was on her lower back, she had brown implants and officers said she had breast implants.

A reward for $5,000 has been posted for information leading to an arrest.
