Police are investigating the death of a woman, found in her Hercules home Friday night, as a homicide, a police spokeswoman said. Officers responded to a call about a woman who was found unconscious in her home on Ash Court at about 10:45 p.m. Friday, Officer Connie Van Putten said. The neighbors, who made the call to police, were called by the woman’s husband to check on her, Van Putten said. The woman, whose name was not released, was supposed to pick up her husband at Oakland International Airport, the officer said. Van Putten said the neighbors saw the woman, who was in her 50s, unresponsive and bleeding. She was pronounced dead at the scene, Van Putten said. The cause of death is under investigation, but police are treating it as a homicide, she said. Van Putten said the woman suffered a “traumatic injury.”

There were no other victims in the home, but the family car, a sky blue 2011 Subaru Outback with an Idaho license plate, was missing from the garage, the officer said. Van Putten said police is “classifying it as a stolen car.” As of 1:45 p.m., there were no leads on any suspects, Van Putten said.
