A 47-year-old transient was arrested in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in a San Bernardino field, police said Monday night.

Jamie Farron Putnam was found near the 1700 block of South E Street, where the body was recovered, police said.


The victim, who appeared to be in her 40s, showed evidence of blunt-force trauma, according to the San Bernardino Police Department.

‘A dispute between the victim and suspect may have led to the attack,’ police said in a statement.

Putnam was being held at county jail. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Michele Mahan at (909) 841-5361.
