CAMAS, Wash. - A woman was found dead Sunday afternoon inside of a home in Camas, and homicide investigators are looking for her boyfriend as a suspect in her homicide.

Camas Police said they were called out about 1:30 p.m. after a relative found 35-year-old Luz Guitron dead at her home on 22nd Avenue near NE Everett Street.

Investigators said there were signs of a struggle and that they believe Guitron died of homicidal violence.

Investigators are looking for Guillermo Juarez, 38, as a suspect in her death. Officials said they are working to get a warrant for his arrest.

Officials said Guitron and Juarez were dating and have a child together. Guitron's children are safe, officials said.

Diana Dugger, her children, and grand children live next door. She says in the 10 years that she's known the family, there has never been any problems.

"They just seemed like a really close-knit family. There never seemed to be any issues, I never saw any that I can think of, so it's really startling to me."

She says her grandchildren used to play with the two young boys, adding Juarez even did some landscaping for her.

"He even used to mow the lawn without us even asking, he'd just come out here and mow the lawn," she said.

Juarez is described as about 5-foot 9-inches tall, weighing about 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

If you see Juarez, call 9-1-1.

Police said there is no immediate threat to the public.

There's a GoFundMe.com account to help Guitron's children and family members in the wake of her death.

This is a developing story; updates will be posted as information comes in.
