Domonique Newburn, 31, was found dead inside her apartment Tuesday afternoon after residents called police reporting a disturbance, the Fontana Police Department said.
Witnesses said that a man seen leaving the apartment took off in the victim's black 2004 Mercedes.
But the vehicle appeared to have been parked "for some time" at Perris Hill Park in San Bernardino, where it was located by detectives, Sgt. Doug Imhof said in a statement.
He said there were no details on how the vehicle ended up at the park.
Police said the man seen leaving the apartment was described as 5-foot-8 with an average build and wearing blue jeans. He was believed to be in late 20s or early 30s.
