November 14, 2012 |  8:22 pm

San Bernardino police are investigating the slaying of a 76-year-old woman in her home Wednesday.

The body of Mary Elizabeth Blaskey was found by her son when he arrived at her home in the 3000 block of Fremontia Drive, near the Arrowhead Country Club, shortly before 2 p.m. to take her to a doctor’s appointment, said San Bernardino police spokesman Lt. Paul Williams.

Officers found trauma to Blaskey’s body, but a cause of death is pending a medical examination, Williams said.

The victim's 2001 Lexus was missing from the home. It is gray-green and has California license plate number 4ULT539.

Williams asked anyone who sees the car to call local law enforcement.

“We believe whoever did this is obviously very dangerous and there could be evidence inside the car,” he said.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the department’s anonymous tip line: (909) 384-5656.
