SAN DIEGO - A 51-year-old woman was found dead Thursday in her Carmel Mountain apartment under suspicious circumstances, police said.
Officers and paramedics found the woman unconscious in her residence in the 11700 block of Stoney Peak Drive around 9:15 a.m. after getting a report of an unconscious female, said Lt. Manuel Del Toro of the San Diego Police Department's Homicide Unit.
"A friend of the deceased woman became concerned when she did not show up for work today and she did not call in to advise co-workers of her absence," Del Toro said. "This was very uncharacteristic of the deceased woman."
"There was no sign of trauma and the cause of death is unknown at this time," Del Toro said. "Detectives are investigating this incident as a suspicious death pending the autopsy results."
