(EGPNews) – Vernon police are investigating the death of a woman found earlier this month near the railroad tracks as a homicide, believing that it is connected with another body found in South Gate.

The body in South Gate belonged to the woman’s husband, according to officials. “This was not a random act and may be related to some narcotics activity,” said Vernon Interim Police Chief Daniel Calleros.

The woman identified as 24-year old Maria Castaneda was found at 7:30 am at the 4600 block of Fruitland Avenue with a penetrating wound to her head.
Anyone with more information about the slaying was asked to call the Vernon police at (323) 587-5171.
