Suspect arrested in Colorado in Home Gardens death of woman, 69

A 27-year-old woman was arrested in Colorado on suspicion of murder in the October death of a 69-year-old woman from Home Gardens, officials said Tuesday.

Kayla Mylissa McCall of Home Gardens was arrested on Jan. 8 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, in the Oct. 30 death of Sandra Ross, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Team assisted with McCall’s arrest.

On Oct. 3, at 4:29 a.m., deputies responded to the 12000 Block of December Court in Home Gardens on an elder abuse call. Ross had been transported to a local hospital by paramedics, where hospital personnel discovered and reported her injuries, the Sheriff’s Department said.

An investigation ensued until Ross died as a result of her injuries on Oct. 30, and the Sheriff’s Department’s Central Homicide Unit assumed the investigation. McCall was determined to be the suspect and was determined to no longer be in California and believed to be in Colorado, the Sheriff’s Department said.

The investigation is active and no additional details were available, the Sheriff’s Department said.

The Department encouraged anyone with information regarding the incident to contact Central Homicide Investigator Darryl Robertson at 951-235-2162 or 951-955-2777.
