On Friday evening, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Unit notified the Anaheim Police Department’s Homicide Detail that its detectives had been working a suspicious death after Abdulaziz Munther Alubidy was involved in a collision just after 4 p.m. at the intersection of San Marcos Boulevard and Rancho Santa Fe in San Marcos. When deputies looked inside Alubidy’s vehicle, a gray 2018 Toyota Tundra 4-door pickup, they found a deceased woman inside. The woman, who has since been identified as 56-year-old Jessie Villesca of Anaheim, had injuries that led deputies to believe she was the victim of a homicide. Alubidy was detained at the scene.
San Diego Sheriff’s homicide detectives conducted a preliminary investigation and found evidence that indicated Villesca had been killed near W. Corporate Way and N. Muller Street in Anaheim earlier in the day. Based on that information, Anaheim homicide detectives assumed control of the investigation and have continued to work in collaboration with San Diego sheriff’s homicide detectives.
Detectives are not discussing possible motives or Villesca’s injuries at this time. Albudy was booked into the Anaheim Detention Facility and is being held without bail.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Anaheim Police Department’s Homicide Detail at 714-321-3669.
