HUNTINGTON PARK (CNS) - A man was in custody today for allegedly killing his mother, whose body was found in a trash receptacle in Huntington Park, the sheriff's department reported.
Deputies from the Century Station went to the 2500 block of Santa Ana Street about 10:30 p.m. Sunday on a family member's report of a stolen vehicle.
“They contacted the informant who stated their vehicle was missing along with a ... female family member. Preliminary information revealed foul play at the location and a stolen vehicle/missing persons investigation was initiated,'' according to a sheriff's department statement.
The body of 66-year-old Teresa Pasillas Iniguez was found about 6:30 a.m. Monday in a trash bin not far from the Santa Ana Street residence, according to sheriff's officials and the coroner's office. An autopsy was pending.
The stolen vehicle was found, along with the woman's 32-year-old son, early Monday morning at an undisclosed location in Rosemead. He was initially listed as a "person of interest'' and was subsequently booked on suspicion of murder, according to the sheriff's department.
The name of the suspect, who did not live with his mother, was not immediately available for release, said Deputy Trina Schrader of the Sheriff's Information Bureau.
