Inmate identified as person of interest in the 2007 death of Bridgette Gearen

Posted: Updated:

As the sixth anniversary of the death of Bridgette Gearan approaches this month, investigators with the Galveston County Sheriff's Office say they have a person of interest in the case.

That person is currently a prison inmate in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

He's been in prison on unrelated charges.  His identity is not being released.

Gearen was a single mom from Orange who was found dead on Crystal Beach on July 15th, 2007.

The 28-year-old had been beaten, raped and strangled.

On the day before her body was found, she had been at a beach house with her two-year-old daughter and friends.

Campers found Gearen's body about 100 yards from that house.
