The family of Leyva Elizabeth Oregel, 32, had been searching for her since July 1 until they received the awful news.

Oregel’s body was found Tuesday in a car parked at a shopping plaza in San Diego, near the Mexico border.

San Diego Police Detectives stated Oregel suffered blunt force trauma to her upper body that indicates her death was a homicide. While detectives have not released her name, Oregel’s family confirmed her identity to edhat.

The initial investigation into Oregel’s disappearance was conducted by the Guadalupe Police Department as she was last seen leaving Guadalupe with her ex-husband around 4:00 p.m. on July 1.

  1. How terrible and sad to have to die this way. Please set boundaries early and never ever allow someone to abuse you verbally, emotionally or physically. It gets worse and worse over time as these monsters try to play with you and your boundaries. If it happens, walk away when it is safe to and do not let them know you will leave. Too many abusive people go on their lives without ever having to pay for their abuse or worse. Whoever did this was likely such a coward that he fled to Mexico. I hope the police and karma will catch up to the murderer.
