LONG BEACH (CNS) - Long Beach police today sought public help to solve the killing of a woman who was found dead in her home more than nine months ago.

Another resident arrived home and discovered Limas unresponsive, then dialed 911, police said.

“Based on suspicious circumstances, homicide detectives responded to the scene to investigate,'' according to a LBPD statement.
