The Modesto Bee - - Local -


Au­thor­i­ties say a woman found bloody and run­ning down a South­ern Cal­i­for­nia street is a sus­pect in the death of a tod­dler whose body was found in a nearby town home.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the boy found dead Fri­day in Covina is the woman’s son. Covina Po­lice Sgt. David Ro­driguez says he ex­pects the woman will be ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of murder once she is re­leased from psy­chi­atric hold. Of­fi­cials say the woman was un­co­op­er­a­tive when of­fi­cers found her around 3:30 a.m.

State­ments she made to of­fi­cers led them to the town home, about 20 miles east of down­town Los An­ge­les.
