The Marin County coroner’s office has confirmed the identity of  the woman found murdered in her San Rafael home on Monday morning. San Rafael police found 72-year-old Eleanor Carlson’s body inside her home at 215 C St. around 4 a.m. Monday. Police said there were obvious signs of a break-in and her 30-year-old son, Richard Leroy Carlson, has been labeled a suspect in the homicide. Bay Area police agencies were advised Monday to be on the lookout for Carlson who is believed to be driving a 1989 four-door Toyota Camry with a California license 2RAJ895. Law enforcement agencies throughout the state have been notified as well and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, police said today. Carlson is white, 5 feet 11 inches, 160 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. San Rafael police said Carlson was involved in a domestic violence incident with his mother in January. A police report on the incident was sent to the Marin County District Attorney’s Office for review. Marin County District Attorney Ed Berberian declined to comment on the domestic violence investigation Monday. San Rafael police also said Monday that Eleanor Carlson got a temporary restraining order against her son after the January incident but it had not been served. Police later said the order was served on Richard Carlson on Wednesday. An autopsy on Carlson was conducted late Monday. The Marin County coroner’s office has not released the cause of death.
