Los Banos had its second homicide of the year Tuesday afternoon, police said.
Chief Gary Brizzee said officers went to a home on the 800 block of Auction Drive at 2:37 p.m. in response to a request for a welfare check.
A dead woman was discovered in the home at the gated neighborhood called Four Seasons.
"From what we gather, it's a family- related incident," he said. "To be honest with you, it sounds like it's a very in-depth story. I'm not sure we have a handle on it just yet."
