The Pasadena police investigation into the death of a woman in her 60’s whose body was found by a passerby Sunday in a medical center’s parking lot officially remained in limbo Monday, awaiting the coroner’s office autopsy to determine the cause of her death.
The woman’s identity had not been officially released “pending notification of next of kin,” Los Angeles County Dept. of Medical Examiner-Coroner Public Information Officer Sarah Ardalani said Monday.
Police called the woman’s death “suspicious” but are uncertain if it was a homicide or a medical issue death. The autopsy could be completed by Tuesday.
The womasn’s body was found in a parking lot in the 100 block of Alessandro Place, just west of South Fair Oaks Avenue, about 3:01 p.m. on July 14, authorities said.
Investigators have said little except they are checking for video and continue canvassing for witnesses.
“Hopefully,” Lt. Jesse Carrillo told KCAL “we can locate cameras within a path that she traveled, may have traveled, who she may have been accompanied with, was she alone? That sort of thing still needs to be looked into.”
Police also told KCAL the woman does not appear to have been homeless.
