KTLA reports that detectives were called to Huntington Park’s Global Nature vitamin and herbs store after a dead woman was discovered yesterday evening bound, gagged, and most likely strangled in the rear of the shop. Discovering an open and empty cash register, police believe the killing was part of a “brazen” robbery in the middle of the day, leaving local residents on edge, as some say the neighborhood feels as if it’s becoming increasingly more dangerous. Unfortunately, the shop lacks security cameras to tell the full story of what happened. [KTLA]
