The Aransas Pass Police Department (APPD) is seeking information regarding the death of Rebecca Anne Maloney, 29, of Rockport.

The APPD was called to Railroad Street, just north of W. Wheeler Avenue A, at about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21 after a witness reported a toolbox that had a deceased body inside.
