(CNS) – A young woman – the apparent victim of a homicide – whose body was found near railroad tracks in Vernon was identified Tuesday.

Maria Castaneda, 24, of Los Angeles, was found about 7:30 a.m. Monday in the 4600 block of Fruitland Avenue, according to Vernon police and Ed Winter of the coroner’s office.

An autopsy was pending on the body of the woman, who had a “penetrating” head wound, according to authorities.

The tracks are along a railroad “spur” that is used for deliveries to commercial buildings and are not used for through traffic, Winegar said. Anyone with more information about the slaying was asked to call the Vernon police at (323) 587-5171.

    As I had suggested early on, just after Breeanna Guzman went missing…that there is in fact a serial killer (actually a team effort, two men utilizing a van) operating in the Central Los Angeles area. But as always the case..No one listens to me until later, after these homicides are eventually linked.
