Authorities are looking for a 33-year-old man in connection with the killing of a woman and her 17-year-old daughter who were found dead Wednesday afternoon in a Monrovia apartment.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators late Wednesday identified the suspect as Nimrod Perez Guerrero and said in an alert that he should be considered “armed and dangerous.”
His relationship to the victims was not clear.
Monrovia police went to conduct a welfare check after someone reported an assault at the home in the 800 block of West Colorado Boulevard, said sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Alfred.
When no one answered the door, officers entered the unit through an open window and found the two bodies.
The apartment complex sits across from Monrovia High School, where the girl was a student. Coroner’s officials were investigating how and when the victims died.
The names of the victims were not released.
The suspect, described as 5-feet-8 and 200 pounds, is possibly driving a gray 2014 Toyota RAV4 with the license plate 7FPB132.
Anyone with information about the man’s whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
