CARLSBAD — Carlsbad police are investigating the death of a female transient by unknown circumstances. Officers were contacted at approximately 12:38 p.m. Aug. 11 after a companion of the victim notified authorities that she was found unresponsive.
The companion, a 58-year-old male, told officers he found the female unresponsive around 12:20 p.m., when he returned to the encampment the two shared. The male called authorities from a shopping center near the Carlsbad/Encinitas border and Sheriff’s deputies accompanied him to the location of the victim.
