After making a rest stop on Gorman Post Road, just north of State Route 138, a motorist saw a woman lying in nearby brush. The woman appeared to be unconscious so the motorist called 911.
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies with the Santa Clarita station arrived with emergency personnel and found the woman suffered head trauma. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman was between the age of 25 and 35, about 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighed about 96 pounds. She had blue eyes and her hair was dyed a dark burgundy color. She also had tattoos on her body that included the names Rylee and Brayden.
Anyone with more information on the woman or investigation was urged to call the L.A. County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau Lt. Joe Mendoza, Sgt. Ken Perry or Detective Scott Matlock at (323) 890-5500. Those who wish to remain anonymous may call "Crime Stoppers" at (800) 222-8477.
