Woman’s Body Found on Sidewalk in Northridge – Jennifer Gould Reports

NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (KTLA) — An investigation is underway after a woman’s body was found in front of a home in Northridge.

The discovery was made around 5 p.m. Wednesday in the 10200 block of Encino Avenue, near Devonshire Street.

A woman driving by with her daughter spotted the victim slumped over and called 911.

Paramedics responded and pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

The victim — said to be in her 30s — has not been identified.

There was no information about the cause of death. It was also unclear if the woman died at the scene or if her body was dumped there.

“We have been investigating, we have looked at the property here. We still don’t know her connection to the property,” said LAPD Det. Harvey Martin.

Investigators had the street closed for some 12 hours. They removed a car from in front of the residence, but would only say that it was a vehicle of interest.

Anyone with information is asked to call the LAPD’s Devonshire Division.
