A 3-week-old girl who was abducted after her mother, father and uncle were shot has been found dead, authorities in California said.
Eliza Delacruz was taken from a home in Long Beach on Saturday. Her body was found in a strip mall Dumpster in San Diego Sunday afternoon, police said.
Authorities told CNN that the attacker possibly knew the family and that immediately after the shooting, a man fled the home with the child.
“About 4:30 p.m., San Diego County Sheriff’s Department notified Long Beach Police Department that they were investigating the discovery of a deceased infant, knowing that Long Beach Police were actively investigating a case involving a missing infant,” said Long Beach police spokeswoman Marlene Arrona.
The San Diego Coroner’s Office confirmed the deceased infant was Eliza.
