A story for every victim

Elsy Molina, 36

Elsy Molina, 36, a Latina woman, was found dead in the sleeping area of the tractor-trailer truck she operated in the 2800 block of Victoria in Carson on Friday, Oct. 12, at about 10 a.m., said Sheriff's Lt. Dan Rosenberg.

Her throat had been cut.

When Molina, who worked alone as a truck driver, did not come home Thursday night, her sisters went to look for her. They found the truck, and Molina inside. She was the mother of as many as three small children. Authorities do not believe she was raped or robbed; it's possible her attacker knew her.
