On Monday, Jan. 25, 2010, The Times launched a new version of the Homicide Report. You have arrived at the old blog.

Readers can no longer post new comments on this site, but we encourage you to join the conversation on our new site. The updated Homicide Report features an interactive map and searchable database of the more than 2,600 homicides in L.A. County since January 2007, when Times' reporter Jill Leovy first started this blog with the goal of covering each one.

Comments prior to Jan. 26 will, at least for now, remain archived here, with links provided in the new database.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail, and we will do our best to respond.

Angeles National Forest: Lorraine Minjarez, 32

November 13, 2009 |  9:41 pm

Lorraine Minjarez, a 32-year Latina, was found dead Saturday, Nov. 7, at the 1.34-mile marker on Mt. Baldy Road in the Angeles National Forest, authorities said.

Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office, said she was strangled and her neck had been slashed several times. Robert Louis Caballero, 32, of Pomona was arrested Saturday in connection with three killings, including Minjarez's.

Caballero was taken into custody after leading police on a short chase when he refused to pull over for a minor traffic stop. He was detained on suspicion of murder in the Sept. 29 shooting of Armando Vidana, 25, of Pomona. He is also suspected of killing David Arthur Padilla Jr., 29, of El Monte on Saturday morning.
