Leads are being sought in the murder of 51-year-old woman who was found dead on Nov. 8 in front of her house in the 2100 block of S. Redondo Ave.
No arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified, according to detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Bureau Homicide Unit. The victim, identified as Anita Henderson, was found lying unconscious on her driveway around 5 p.m. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene. She apparently died from major head trauma.
No motive has been established in the murder, and investigators have few leads. They are hoping nearby residents may have seen something in the hours leading up to the murder. They are also seeking surveillance camera footage from Nov. 7 and 8 from any businesses in the area around Washington Boulevard, between Hauser Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, with the hope that images of a suspect or vehicle was captured.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Luis Carranza, with the LAPD’s West Homicide Bureau, at (213)382-9470. During weekends and off-hours, call the LAPD’s 24-hour hotline at (877)LAPD247.
