San Diego Union Tribune - Homicide investigation underway on Pala Indian Reservation

By Paul Sisson Contact Reporter

Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a 43-year-old woman found outside her home on the Pala Indian Reservation early Monday morning.

Deputies from the sheriff’s Valley Center substation were called to a home on West Pala Mission Road near Chutnicutt Road about 3 a.m. by the Pala Tribal Police Department on a report of an assault with a deadly weapon. When they arrived, deputies found the woman whose body “displayed obvious signs of trauma,” according to a law enforcement statement.

Investigators have not released information on what kind of weapon was used, though several San Diego-area television stations reported that some neighbors in the area heard gunshots.

Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call (858) 974-2321 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

A deputy at the scene described the situation as "hostile." The tribe was upset that body was not yet covered.
