Hacienda Heights, Industry Station

Updated Narrative:

Sheriff's Homicide Detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the murder of a 66 year-old female Asian at her residence that was discovered on Thursday, August 29, 2013, in the 15000 block of Las Tunas Drive, Hacienda Heights.

Detectives have learned that family members had not heard from the victim for a few days so decided to check on her. When they arrived, they noticed a strong odor emanating from the garage area at which time Industry Sheriff's Station deputies were called to investigate.

When deputies arrived and entered the residence, they found the victim dead. The victim's 44 year-old son, who was at the location when deputies arrived, is being detained on a possible probation violation and has not been officially named as the suspect of his mother's murder.

The motive and the circumstances surrounding the death of the 66 year-old victim is still under investigation.

The name of the deceased victim and her 44 year-old son is being withheld at this time.
