Homicide detectives Friday were investigating the death of a 53-year-old woman who was found by her daughter inside her City Heights home.
The victim’s adult daughter called 911 shortly before 8:05 p.m. Thursday to report that she had found her mother injured and unresponsive inside a residence on Estrella Avenue between University and Polk avenues, according to San Diego Police.
Officers arrived at the home and found the 53-year-old woman inside with traumatic injuries to her upper body, Lt. Chris Tivanian said.
The woman, whose name was not immediately available, was pronounced dead at the scene, Tivanian said.
Investigators learned that the woman’s adult daughter became concerned when she was unable to contact her mother by phone then went to her mother’s residence and found her gravely injured, the lieutenant said.
No suspect descriptions were immediately available.
Anyone with information about the slaying was urged to call the SDPD homicide unit at 619-531-2293, or the San Diego County Crime Stoppers‘ anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477.
