Authorities investigating the death of a San Diego County woman whose body was found in her mobile home have arrested her son on suspicion of murder.
County sheriff's homicide Lt. Dennis Brugos said deputies found Dixie Lee Larson, 57, on Saturday while conducting a welfare check at her home in El Cajon. He said she died of blunt force trauma.
Larson's 28-year-old son, John Nicholas Gunther, was arrested several hours later. Brugos did not release details on what led investigators to Gunther, or the motive for the attack.
