    A woman’s body was found lying in the brush near a dead-end road in Carlsbad, police said Monday.

    Officers were called to the 3700-block of Haymar Drive in Carlsbad just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

    The undeveloped area, just south of State Route 78 and west of College Boulevard, was the spot where officers found a woman in her 50s with multiple stab wounds to her chest.

    Carlsbad police Lt. Matt Magro said a knife was found in the area but investigators are not sure if the woman's wounds were self-inflicted.

    There were no signs of struggle, he added.

    Investigators are calling the discovery a suspicious death and are attempting to contact the woman’s next of kin.
