Police have booked a 28-year-old Anaheim man on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was found inside his pickup at a crash in downtown San Marcos, Anaheim police reported Sunday.
Abdulaziz Munther Alubidy was involved in a crash just after 4 p.m. Friday at the intersection of San Marcos Boulevard and Rancho Santa Fe Road in San Marcos, said Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer.
When San Diego County sheriff's deputies looked inside Alubidy's 2018 Toyota Tundra pickup, they found the body of Jessie Villesca, 56, of Anaheim, who had injuries indicating she was a homicide victim, Carringer said.
Alubidy was detained at the scene and detectives conducted an investigation that led them to the conclusion that the murder had been committed near West Corporate Way and North Muller Street in Anaheim, he said.
Based on that information, the case was turned over to Anaheim homicide detectives, who took Alubidy into custody and booked him into the Anaheim Detention Facility. He was being held without bail, Carringer said.
A motive for the killing was not released. There was no word on the relationship between Alubidy and Villesca.
The details of the crash that led to Alubidy's arrest, meanwhile, were not released.
