Police investigate elderly woman's death as suspicious

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman in her 80s was found dead Wednesday inside her residence in San Diego's Golden Hill neighborhood and police said her body showed signs of trauma.

Patrol officers found the body when they responded around 2:35 p.m. to a call of a female down inside a residence in the 2800 block of F Street, said Lt. Jorge Duran of the San Diego Police Department's Homicide Unit.

The woman's body was found on the floor of the home's living room, Duran said.

After members of the victim's family made several calls to the home and were not able to reach the woman, one of them went to the residence and knocked on the door, Duran said.

When no one answered, the family member looked through a window, saw the woman lying on the floor and called 911, he said.

Officers and firefighters arrived and forced entry into the home, Duran said.

An autopsy was scheduled to determine the cause of death, which is under investigation by homicide detectives, he said.

The woman's name was not released.

Anyone with information about the death was urged to contact the San Diego police Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293. Anonymous tips can be made by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-TIPS.
