Woman Dies After Taking Off Clothes At OC Market

SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — Police are investigating a mysterious death at a market in Santa Ana.

A woman was acting violently Wednesday at El Toro Carniceria-Meat Shop at 1340 West 1st Street when a security guard placed her in handcuffs, according to investigators.

A witness said she was behaving erratically and began removing her clothes.

“She was jumping like crazy. And then she made a mess inside the liquor store. And that’s why the security guard had to do what he had to do, and grab her and handcuff her,” Joseph Castellan said.

Moments later, she died.

Detectives have not released the identity of the woman.

A coroner will try to determine if she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
