Woman's body found in husbands Nissan pickup truck
Just before 4:00 pm Wednesday February 6, William Barker was driving home from work when several San Diego Sheriff cars fell in behind him sirens blaring. Before he could pull over the patrol cars stopped in front of the sheriff's Imperial Beach substation on Imperial Beach Blvd. "Not sure what was going on but whatever it is it's big" he reported. A woman walking her children home from school saw firefighters and paramedics run from the fire station to the parking lot between the substation and the Imperial Beach City Hall. "They started doing CPR on a woman laying next to the white truck" she said pointing to a newer white Nissan pickup truck parked just feet from the stations entrance. The body lay uncovered as sheriff deputies began taping off the entire complex and one deputy observing a crowd gather across the street was heard telling other deputies to use their patrol cars to make a wall in front of the station. Fire fighters used a fire truck to block off Imperial Beach Blvd. at 9th Street while deputies set flares to block traffic at 8th Street. A San Diego Sheriff spokesperson told the media that shortly before 4:00 pm a man walked into the substation and told deputies that he had just killed his wife. Deputies then discovered the woman's body inside the parked truck.
