Police Monday hunted a possible suspect who ran from the body of a woman in her 50s in South Los Angeles.
There were few details in the apparent murder mystery, but police said the victim was not homeless and the possible killing was not gang related.
Authorities would only say that a possible suspect was last seen fleeing the area on foot.
The woman was found at about 12:05 a.m. Sunday in the 7600 block of South Western Avenue unconscious and not breathing. Arriving paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
Police did not release a cause of death.
“The victim is not homeless, and this incident is not gang related,” police said in a statement.
No other information was yet available.
