Police on Thursday released surveillance video showing a 23-year-old woman whose body was later found in a Redlands orange grove.

Sylvia Maria Flores is seen on the video footage at a fast-food restaurant near D and 5th streets in San Bernardino during the evening of Feb. 25.

She was found the next day in the grove near Alabama Street and Almond Avenue in the same or similar clothes that she wearing at the restaurant, the Redlands Police Department said.
