A Bellflower woman who was found dead in her home was identified Wednesday, and an autopsy was pending to determine the cause of death.

Deputies went to the 9500 block of Cedar Street about 6:30 p.m. Monday in response to a report of a person not breathing, said Deputy Kelvin Moody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

Kenia Avilez, 22, died at the scene, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter. An autopsy was pending, Winter said.

Avilez’ husband told deputies the couple had gone out partying and drank a lot Sunday night to early Monday before falling asleep, sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said. The man awoke sometime Monday afternoon and discovered his wife unresponsive and not breathing, authorities said.
