Police on Thursday identified the woman who was found dead in the bushes behind a La Habra neighborhood carport earlier this week.
The body was found covered with foliage in the 900 block of S. Idaho Street on Monday when a passerby's dog wandered near the body, according to the La Habra Police Department.
