SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego homicide detectives Friday were investigating the death of an 83-year-old Palm City woman whose caretaker was arrested on suspicion of elder abuse shortly after the older woman's body was found.
A relative from Napa called police just before 11 a.m. Thursday to ask officers to check on the welfare of the woman, San Diego police homicide Lt.
Kevin Rooney said.
Officers went to the woman's home in the 2200 block of Citrus Avenue and discovered her body in a bathroom, he said, adding that there were no obvious signs of trauma but the relative suspected elder abuse by the caretaker.
While waiting for a search warrant to investigate further, officers contacted the woman's caretaker in a residence next door to the victim's home.
The caretaker, 70-year-old Maria Moore, was questioned and then arrested on suspicion of elder abuse, Rooney said, adding that she was booked into county jail.
Homicide detectives were working with the county coroner's office to determine the cause and manner of death.
