Eileen Nicole Ponce-Orta, a 22-year-old Latina woman, was found stabbed to death inside her Plymouth Voyager in the 400 block of Civic Center Plaza in Pomona at about 10:58 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15.  Pomona police initially said that a parking enforcement officer had discovered the body after receiving  a call of an illegally parked vehicle. It was later learned by a Times staff writer that family members had instead discovered the body under some blankets in the backseat of the minivan. Orta had been reported missing earlier in the week to the Covina Police Department. More in the Los Angeles Times story
