SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego police Friday publicly identified the 64-year-old woman found dead inside a Barrio Logan apartment.

On June 24, Francisca Agundez's body was discovered in the bathroom around 4 p.m. in the 2800 block of Boston Avenue, after a man reported to police that he was unable to contact his mother.
