Fresno police are searching for clues after a woman was found dead Sunday evening in a southwest Fresno neighborhood.
Lt. Steve Card said police were called to a home near Plumas and San Joaquin streets just before 5 p.m. for what they said was a welfare check of a woman.
When officers arrived, they found a woman in her 20s dead inside the main living space of the home. She was identified Monday as Suzanne Noriega, 22, of Fresno.
Card said there was evidence to suggest there may have been an assault before the woman was killed, but what type of assault is still unclear.
Never miss a local story.
Card said the woman was living in the home but police are not sure if anyone else was at the home.
There is no information on a motive or a suspect. Card said it appeared the woman had been dead for some time before officers arrived.
