San Jose police are searching today for a transient suspected of killing a woman found dead in a Whitton Avenue home on Friday. The woman, who has been identified as Irma Campos, a 52-year-old San Jose resident, was found dead in a home on the 1200 block of Whitton Avenue just after 11 a.m. on Friday. She was found there by another woman, who reported the death to a nearby fire station.
Police now believe Campos was killed in a domestic-violence related incident, and are searching for 55-year-old Juan Osornio Martinez in connection with her death, according to Sgt. Jason Dwyer. Martinez is homeless, and known to frequent the downtown San Jose area. Campos is San Jose’s 29th homicide victim this year.
