The 36-year-old* woman’s sister discovered her body at the rental residence in the 4000 block of Van Dyke Avenue shortly before 9 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The victim, whose most recent contact with her family was on Saturday, had suffered suspicious wounds to her upper body, Lt. Anthony Dupree said.

“Homicide investigators were called to the scene and are investigating the death as a homicide,” the lieutenant said.

No suspects in the killing had been identified as of midafternoon.

The victim’s name was withheld pending family notification.
