Eileen Orta (2008-02-15)

Eileen Nicole Ponce-Orta, a 22-year-old Latina woman, was found stabbed to death inside her Plymouth Voyager in the 400 block of Civic Center Plaza in Pomona about 10:58 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15. 

Pomona police initially said that a parking enforcement officer had discovered the body after receiving a call of an illegally parked vehicle. It was later learned by a Times staff writer that family members had discovered the body under some blankets in the back seat of the minivan.

Ponce-Orta had been reported missing earlier in the week to the Covina Police Department.
