Peter Rodriguez Arrested for Alleged 3rd Homicide in San Jose
Police in San Jose have arrested a suspect after an adult female was found dead inside a home early Saturday morning, marking the city’s third homicide of 2020.
Officers were responding to a welfare check when they discovered the body of the victim inside a residence in the 2000 block of Mondigo Avenue, authorities confirmed. Police said the woman had been stabbed multiple times.
On Saturday afternoon police arrested Peter Rodriguez, 38, of San Jose in connection with the homicide.
It was later determined that the person who had initially called authorities to request a welfare check was Rodriguez. During that call he told police he had not spoken to the victim, his girlfriend, for several hours.
Rodriguez was booked into Santa Clara County Jail in connection with the crime, but police said they are still investigating the suspect’s relationship with the victim as well as a possible motive for the killing.
The identity of the victim is being withheld pending notification of family, police said.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact detectives at the San Jose Police Department at (408) 277-5283.
