Police Investigate Suspicious Death

Riverside, Ca-  On Saturday May 3, 2003 at 3:10 p.m. Riverside Police Officers responded to the 1300 Block of Withorn Court to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a 36 year old female. Family members found the victim when they went to her residence to check on her welfare. According to family members, she had been feeling ill in recent days and they became worried when they could not contact her via telephone.

The investigation is ongoing and the cause of death is unknown pending the results of the autopsy later this week.

Anyone with information related to this investigation is urged to contact Detective Ron Whitt at 320-8003.
