A senior was killed in her Hemet home, and a person of interest was identified Friday, though few details about the attack were released.
According to Hemet police Lt. Michael Mouat, patrol officers were sent to a residence in the 1900 block of Calle Amargosa, near Lyon Avenue, shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday to conduct a welfare check on the victim, whose identity was not disclosed, at the request of her loved ones.
“Officers arrived at the location and discovered the deceased elderly female with visible injuries,” the lieutenant said.
He declined to specify the nature of the wounds.
An individual was detained for questioning Friday in connection with the deadly assault, but Mouat did not identify the party or provide any additional details regarding the circumstances.
Anyone with information relevant to the investigation was asked to contact detectives at 951-765-2497.
