Co-worker discovered slain mother, daughter in Redondo Beach

Police collect evidence at the crime scene where two women were found dead in a Redondo Beach apartment. A co-worker discovered the bodies of a Redondo Beach mother and daughter Tuesday morning after she stopped by the apartment, authorities said.

Redondo Beach Sgt. Fabian Saucedo said police responded to the 1900 block of Rockefeller Lane at 10 a.m. They are investigating the deaths as homicides.

"We don't have a suspect at this point," Saucedo said. More information will be released when it is available.

It is an affluent neighborhood, where homicides are rare. There have only been three other homicides in Redondo Beach since 2007, according to the Times' Homicide Report.

Neighbors have been on edge since a killing last week, when 45-year-old Margaret Goldberg was found dead in her apartment. Police said the cases are not related. Her husband, Russell Goldberg, had been wanted for questioning and was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on a Utah highway later that day.

Redondo Beach police declined to say how the women were killed -- or how long they were dead before their bodies were discovered.
