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.
