Body Found Near 2 Freeway Onramp Across From Allesandro School

The body of a partially clothed female was discovered around 9 a.m. Thursday by a Caltrans worker near the 2 Freeway onramp at the border of Echo Park and Silver Lake.

LAPD detectives were on the scene Thursday morning after the body of partially clothed woman was discovered in the brush near the 2 Freeway onramp across from Allesandro Elementary School on Riverside Drive.

According to LAPD Commander Andrew Smith, who answered questions at the site for reporters, the woman was in her early 20s and may have been thrown from a car.

A Caltrans worker found the body in the brush near the onramp.

LAPD Robbery Homicide and Northeast division detectives are both working on the case.

The woman's name has been withheld pending notification of her relatives.

We'll keep an eye on developments. So keep an eye on the site.

So sad to hear they found the young mothers body. I'm glad her family can have some closure and be able to bring her home. I hope they find the evil person or persons that took her life.

Is anyone saying anything about the similarities between this murder and the murder of Michelle Lozano who lived very close to this girl?

@Yes, there has been a strand of comment about that on the Eastsider, and a call for police to now give that case some attention again.
