Authorities in Camarillo are seeking the husband of a woman who was found dead in what is believed to be a domestic violence assault. Jose Guzman is wanted for questioning in connection with the death of his wife, whom police have not identified by name.
According to police reports, they were called to the couple’s Camarillo home for a domestic disturbance in the early hours of Friday, October 28. When police arrived, they found the woman with serious injuries, but Guzman had already left the residence. The woman was taken to a hospital in Thousand Oaks, but she later died of her injuries.
Guzman is a truck driver with no prior history of domestic violence. The couple had moved to Camarillo from Oxnard about three years ago. According to neighbors, the couple has two sons. Other relatives, including Guzman’s mother, were home at the time of the assault.
The woman would be the third Camarillo woman to die from a domestic assault in that city this year. Earlier in October, Janet Huntington was shot to death by her husband. He also shot himself, and died of his injuries the next day. In April, a 75-year-old Camarillo man shot and killed his 69-year-old wife before killing himself.
