    No further details about the investigation were released and the name of the woman was also withheld pending notification of her next of kin Police asked anyone with information about the death to contact Det. Steve Aubuchon. How’s anyone going to provide info without details or name of the woman if we don’t know who she is?

    C’mon Se. Don’t you have a clue how these things work?

    Se –

    They are asking for information about the death, not just the person. So, for example, if someone saw something suspicious happen to a woman there in that area at that time, they can call the police with info now. After the family is notified, they can collect more information about the victim herself.

      The Downey Police Department is very adept at handling such professional matters.

    Downey PD should probably call in the LASD for help cause I doubt they have a lot of experience handling homicides. Small departments usually call in the big boys for this type of thing.

    Who the victim is, is none of your god damn business, Se’
