The investigation began last month after someone spotted a body along the 6100 block of Red Bluff in Pasadena. Dental records later identified the remains as of a 57 year old woman. The woman was a prostitute who worked in the Sheldon area, police said.
Further investigation led police to reports about a man who had attacked several prostitutes in that area. Police were led to a woman who was allegedly taken by the man at gunpoint forced to have sex and then beaten.
