Authorities Investigating Death of Woman Found in West Hollywood Apartment as Suspicious

Homicide detectives were investigating the death of a woman whose body was discovered in a West Hollywood apartment complex on Wednesday.

Deputies received a call around 1:45 p.m. regarding a person found dead at a complex on the 1100 block of Curson Avenue, according to a statement from Los Angeles County sheriff's officials.

The woman was unresponsive when officials arrived and pronounced dead at the scene, deputies said.

Authorities did not identify the victim beyond saying she was in her 70s.

Detectives on scene confirmed to KTLA that the death was suspicious, but declined to provide further details.

“I’ve been home all day and I haven’t heard a thing,” said Jimmy Perez, who lives nearby.

However, Perez told KTLA around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning he did notice a man near the carport who he described as "way off, just super off.”

The man's presence made him feel uncomfortable, Perez said, so he vacated the area.

“He was just hiding there, then I just left," he said. "I came around, did a couple loops, and he was gone.”

Anyone with information about the incident can contact sheriff's homicide detectives at 323-890-5500, or at 800-222-TIPS to remain anonymous. Information can also be submitted electronically via www.lacrimestoppers.org.
