Woman Found Dead in South Side Alley Had Accused BCSO Deputy of Sexual Assault

A 36-year-old woman whose body was dumped in a South Side alley this summer had accused a former Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputy of sexual assault and was listed as a witness in a separate sexual assault case against the same deputy, court records show.

Jessica Ramona Gonzales, who also went by the alias Ramona Jessica Gonzales, was fatally shot in the head and later abandoned in the 3500 block of South Flores Street, police said. Neighbors found her body partially covered by a blanket around 1 a.m. July 27.

Gonzales was one of three people to accuse the former detention deputy, Erick Montez, of sexual assault. An indictment claims Montez sexually assaulted Gonzales on Dec. 31, 2012 while she was in jail on a drug possession charge.

A neighbor first reported the unresponsive woman around 1 a.m. on July 27, 2017, in the 3500 block of South Flores Street. The woman was later pronounced dead.

According to mySA archives, Montez’s duties included transporting inmates to different locations. On the day of the alleged rape, Gonzales was transported from the from the Bexar County Jail to a substance abuse treatment facility, according to online records.

Now, due to her death, the case in which Gonzales was the accuser has been dropped by state prosecutors.

Police said they have no suspects in Gonzales’ slaying at this time, and authorities have not connected the killing to the accusations against Montez.

“At this point we haven’t established a link between [Montez] and the murder of Jessica Gonzales,” said Ofc. Doug Greene, a spokesman for the San Antonio Police Department. “We’re going to look at this case from every angle, and not rule out that possibility, but he is not a suspect right now.”
