A story for every victim

Socorro Senen Munoz, 28

Socorro Senen Munoz, a 28-year-old Latina, was stabbed to death Monday, Feb. 6, in the 16300 block of Doublegrove Street in Valinda, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Munoz was found unconscious inside her home about 8:34 p.m. after a neighbor noticed that her front door was open, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Joe Mendoza. 

The neighbor called 911, but paramedics were unable to revive Munoz. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:53 p.m. She had multiple stab wounds and blunt force injuries, according to coroner’s records. 

Investigators learned that Munoz was married, “but her husband was nowhere to be seen,” Mendoza said. Deputies found her husband, Ricky Ramos, standing near his parked car in the 15500 block of Amar Road, about 3 miles east of his residence. 

Ramos, a 32-year-old Latino, was arrested and on Feb. 9 was charged with murder, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records. He is scheduled to be arraigned in the Pomona Courthouse South on March 6.  

Munoz and Ramos have one child who was not home when the stabbing occurred, Mendoza said. The child is in the care of family. 

Investigators aren't sure what led to the stabbing, Mendoza said. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
