A 24-year-old man was jailed Tuesday on suspicion of killing a young woman found inside a car in Oceanside.
Officers and paramedics sent to check out a report of a “person down” inside a vehicle near the intersection of West Redondo and Luna drives found the woman’s body around 8:40 p.m. Monday, according to Oceanside Police.
The victim’s name was withheld pending family notification, but authorities said she was a 22-year-old Oceanside resident.
Investigators initially questioned Uriel Leon in connection with the woman’s death, then arrested him on suspicion of first-degree murder, said Oceanside Police Officer Kathleen Vincent.
Police did not immediately disclose the relationship between the suspect and victim.
