Woman's Body Wrapped in a Blanket

A woman’s body, with obvious trauma, was found wrapped in a blanket in a Barrio Logan alley Monday, police said.

A man noticed the body at 7:49 a.m. in the north alley of 3000 Main Street.

“He’s the one that actually opened the covers to see the body,” nearby resident Ana Lopez said.

The man works at a nearby welding shop and told Lopez that the victim had a lot of blood on her stomach.

“The citizen attempted to rouse the person, but when he was unsuccessful, he called 9-1-1,” Lt. Kevin Rooney said.

Officers and firefighters responded and pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
