Gruesome Find

The police in action. Or should that be police inaction?

A woman reported missing for several days was found stabbed to death in a minivan by family members who were called by police to pick up the vehicle because it was illegally parked near Pomona Superior Court, authorities said Monday.

"When they found the car ... they knew it was a missing person's car," Ponce said. "They did not search it. My daughter could have been alive. What if she was still alive at that time, just dying or needing care?"

Officers often don't force their way into abandoned vehicles, police Sgt. Horace Blehr said.

"In hindsight, we're pretty ready to admit we could have gone over (the van) better," he said.

You think?
