New task forces aim to stop the upward trend of domestic violence cases across the state.
The victim of a Solana Beach homicide has been ID'd, but little else is known about the case.
The body was discovered Monday in a home on Santa Florencia by a concerned co-worker. Since then, investigators with the sheriff's department have identified the woman as Sherry Chang, 60, but have released little other information about the case.
Sources, however, have told NBCSanDiego that investigators are looking for the victim's son Bryan Chang, who they said is a person of interest in connection to the case.
In a sign that the case may be moving forward, a K-9 unit from the sheriff's department was sent to the crime scene on Wednesday. It's unclear exactly what the deputies were looking for, but they did spend a lot of time at the home and outside a nearby house. It did not appear that they removed anything from Chang's home during the investigation Wednesday.
Neighbors said Chang lived alone and that they saw her on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. when she went out for a walk. They also said they saw her arrive on Friday accompanied by another person, but they were unable to provide any other details about Chang's passenger. The neighbors also said that the co-worker who found the body told them he was shocked that Chang was with anybody on Friday.
Chang was a wealthy frugal woman, neighbors told NBCSandiego. They also said she was scheduled to fly to Taiwan to visit her mother and other family members next week.
