Business owner identified as victim in East Village homicide, suspects at large
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Homicide detectives sought Thursday to identify and track down a man and woman suspected of murdering the proprietor of an East Village flooring-materials store at his downtown business.
A customer made an emergency call shortly after 3:30 p.m. Wednesday to report finding 49-year-old Ghedeer Radda dead inside Bottom Price Flooring, 1015 G St., according to San Diego police.
Radda’s body bore signs of suspicious trauma, Lt. Matt Dobbs said. Details on those injuries were not released, and a ruling on the cause of the victim’s death was on hold pending autopsy results.
A surveillance camera inside the business captured images of the suspected killers — a man wearing a gray-haired old-woman mask and a light- skinned woman with long purple hair, possibly a wig. The pair fled the area on foot, Dobbs said.
