A murder investigation is underway after a woman was found dead at her home in San Marcos shortly after police pulled a man out of a burning car about 800 meters from Escondido.
According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office, police at the Escondido Police Station were investigating reports of a car fire along 1800 blocks of Escondido’s Foothill View Place around 6:30 pm on Tuesday. In the car, they found a man.
A firefighter who helped a policeman on the scene was able to drag a man out of a burning car. He was severely burned and taken to a local hospital, and as of Wednesday morning, officials said he was in serious condition.
SDSO states that based on the situation of the man found in the car, lawmakers and police officers immediately headed to a location described as a “related residence” in San Marcos.
The house was located 800 blocks in El Trolane, about 0.5 miles southwest of where the burning car was found. The neighborhood is east of North Twin Oaks Valley Road.
A woman’s body was found as authorities went inside to check the health of the resident. SDSO has launched a murder investigation.
The cause of death of the woman has not been disclosed by the investigators. The sheriff’s department said Wednesday that there were no prominent suspects.
Investigation is ongoing. Authorities have not disclosed details such as whether men and women knew each other, their names and ages.
