SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) -- An investigation was underway Saturday after a woman was found dead in a Santa Ana apartment after neighbors reported a domestic violence incident.

Authorities said the woman has not been identified and they are attempting to contact her family.

The investigation was ongoing.
