LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) — A suspect has been identified in what Long Beach police are calling an apparent “domestic violence” murder.

Kevin Adonis Forrest, 41, was arrested at the 6500 block of Falcon Avenue, where the body of a woman was found.

The LBPD has not released details on just how the woman may have died, but did confirm that they responded to a disturbance call  around 7:20 p.m. and found her inside the residence, where she was pronounced dead.

Forrest was booked for murder and is currently being held at the Long Beach Jail on $1,000,000 bail.

A witness reported that the death was inside a home with a “For Sale” sign in front.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office is currently in the process of identifying the victim and determining her cause of death.

A spokesperson for the Long Beach Police Department reported that the investigation is still ongoing.
