Understatement of The Week

Eagle Rock, CA
"There is no doubt, though, that she was a victim of foul play."

And what makes police say that about a 42-year-old nude woman found dead in Eagle Rock?

Probably it was the "quarter-mile trail of blood, tire marks and body tissue that stretched from Loleta to (Fire Captain David Jaime) Del Toro's home in the 5100 block of Vincent Avenue". She was found around 1:30am, about half an hour after neighbors reported hearing screams.

They're not quite sure what happened, yet, beyond the fact that the victim was dragged three blocks by a car. Oh, and that all the evidence points to Del Toro, of course.

Note to criminals: This is not the way to dispose of a body. Just sayin'.

Hat tip to Mack Reed for the heads up.
