SAN DIEGO — One woman was arrested on suspicion of murder. The body of another was discovered near a lake some 70 miles away.
The connection between them, and just about everything else in the case, remained murky as authorities investigated the disappearance of a U.S. Marine’s wife from San Diego County.
“There are too many loose ends to try to make any sense of it at this point,” said Lt. Larry Nesbit, the lead homicide detective in the case, told KCAL-TV.
Later in the day to the north in Riverside County near Temecula, a woman’s body was discovered about a mile from Lake Skinner, Frasier said.
Detectives searching for Brittany Dawn Killgore, who has been missing since Friday, found the body after it was spotted by a maintenance worker leaving the area after clearing brush, Nesbit told several media outlets at the scene where the body was found.
The woman’s identity could not be confirmed until a coroner’s investigation, authorities said
The area where she was found is about 70 miles northeast of San Diego and 25 miles northeast of Killgore’s home in Fallbrook.
He remained jailed on $500,000 bail.
Killgore’s estranged husband — a Marine vehicle operator in Afghanistan — was returning to California on emergency leave after being informed she was missing.
Her cellphone was found in the Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego, but authorities said it was unclear whether she actually left Fallbrook, where she lives.View Entire Story
