A woman's body was found at 2:15 a.m. at a baseball field in in Studio City, said an officer at the Los Angeles Police Department's North Hollywood Station.
The 32-year-old woman has been identified, but police are not releasing her name until the next of kin is notified. Early reports said she was a transient homeless woman, but that is not true, and police said a homeless person found the body in the early morning in a pool of blood.
The woman had been taken to the park and stabbed multiple times in her torso, according to North Hollywood LAPD Capt. Peter Whittingham. Her body was dumped near a shed in a remote part of the park.
"We are telling people in the area that this is an isolated event," Whittingham said. "This is a very quiet area and we have not had anything in area like this, nothing that we can recall."
The body was found near a baseball field at the park in the 10600 block of Valleyheart Drive, said Richard French of LAPD. Residents in the area were kept for part of the morning, from going to their homes on Valleyheart.
Police are investigating the possibility of this being a domestic dispute. Another incident occurred Monday in Studio City at the Sportsmen's Lodge that was considered a domestic dispute.
A PTA mom at a local school said she jogs with her dog in the area every night and has always felt safe in the remote park.
Another local, Diana Miranda, said, "This makes me very nervous, it's usually such a safe area."
The stabbing took place between midnight and 2 a.m., police said. A car was found nearby and is being investigated.
After seven hours of being shut down, the park was re-opened to the public.
