A woman who was found dead in a Burbank home earlier this week may have been dating her suspected killer, police said Wednesday.
Officers responded to a home in the 1900 block of Richard Street just before 10 p.m. Sunday where they found the body of a woman later identified as Brandi Carrasco, the Burbank Police Department stated in a news release.
“She had multiple lacerations on her upper torso that ultimately led to her death,” said Josh Kendrick of the Police Department, who also stated that Carrasco was 35 years old.
Suspected in Carrasco’s death is 28-year-old Timothy Aguilar Andrade, of Hesperia, who was arrested about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to the news release.
Carrasco had recently been staying at the Richard Street home and appeared to have a dating relationship with Andrade, the Police Department stated.
Based on what police described as conflicting statements, police initially arrested 49-year-old Burbank resident Brian Lowe in connection with Carrasco’s death.
Lowe was later released when Andrade provided what police described as “significant information to investigators to confirm he acted alone in the murder,” the news release read.
Andrade also led investigators to what was believed to be the knife used in the killing, the Police Department stated.
