  • Montgomery Texas

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.

On Wednesday, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office announced that the woman is now safe and with family, saying that she is a "family violence victim", Click2Houston reported. He died from a single gunshot wound and a suicide note was left behind, police say.

In the deeply upsetting video, the woman has no trousers on, seems very distressed and appears to be wearing restraints on both wrists. She's wearing a T-shirt, and appears to have some sort of shackle hanging from her right wrist. She is now with her family.

Video of the desperate-looking woman ringing a doorbell in the middle of the night went viral after police in Texas released the footage in the hope that the woman would be identified.

People from all over the country were trying to identify the woman after the video was shared by the sheriff's office this week.

"When deputies arrived on scene they could not get an answer at the door and due to the circumstances made forced entry into the home", the statement read.

Police have not revealed the identities of the couple but added that the woman was from Dallas.

Another unidentified resident told Click2Houston, 'We were dead asleep in our beds. They also stated investigators have inspected the reports for any similarities, "but as of now none are believed to be the women in the video". The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has released the footage online hoping that someone might identify the woman.

One of the neighbors had a system called Ring installed, which is a video doorbell and security system.

Police now say that the woman was not considered missing.

A resident at Sunrise Ranch was awoken to their doorbell ringing at 3:20 am last Friday, but by the time the resident had answered the door, the woman had fled.
