SUISUN CITY — Police could not confirm Tuesday whether a body pulled from the Carquinez Strait by Contra Costa County officials was related to a fatal stabbing in Suisun City last week.
The body of a man was found Monday just east of the Benicia Bridge, according to published reports.
Suisun City police have been on the hunt for Victor Mejia, a suspect in the June 25 stabbing death of Lorena Martinez.
Martinez told police Mejia was her attacker before she died, according to Suisun City police Cmdr. Tim Mattos.
Mejia reportedly took Martinez’s vehicle after the stabbing. It was found on the shoulder of the Benicia Bridge.
Mattos previously said that everything surrounding the car indicated that Mejia may have jumped, but police were on the lookout in case he turns up elsewhere.
An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.
