VAN NUYS, LOS ANGELES — Police searched for clues after a woman was found murdered in an alley in Van Nuys early Tuesday morning.
Authorities say they have very little information about the homicide.
Police say the body was in plain view next to a Dumpster in the 14500 block of Victory Boulevard at about 4 a.m. Authorities said the victim, a Hispanic woman in her 30s, was fatally stabbed with a sharp object.
The victim was declared dead at the scene. She was not identified.
LAPD officers believe the woman was murdered either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. There is a surveillance camera pointing down the alley that might have helped, but it was not working.
