Sheriff’s homicide detectives were investigating the death of a woman at a Baldwin Park motel Friday evening.
The woman’s body was found about 2 p.m. in the 13900 block of Francisquito Avenue when officers responded to a “keep the peace call,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a new release.
The woman, who was described as Hispanic, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said she suffered trauma to her upper body caused by an “unknown object.”
It was unclear exactly where the woman’s body was found, but aerial images from Sky5 showed detectives at the Grand Park Inn, located at 13921 Francisquito Ave.
A man who also found at the motel when authorities arrived was being detained, pending an interview with detectives.
Sheriff’s officials were assisting the Baldwin Park Police Department with the investigation.
No other information was released.
