According to San Bruno Lt. Geoff Caldwell, Zamora's body was found on Gateway Drive in Pacifica last Saturday afternoon. She had been shot one time, Caldwell said.
"I can't describe the manner [of her death] or who located the body, it's still under investigation," Caldwell told us.
What he did say was that police have identified a person of interest and are investigating this as a homicide case. The person of interest has been taken into custody on an unrelated matter in a different jurisdiction, Caldwell said.
"It was not a random act," Caldwell said. "It was very specific, there was a relationship between the two, but what the relationship was I am not prepared to comment."
Zamora, who was known for her dyed hair, was first reported missing on Feb. 16. A week later, police followed up on tips that she had been spotted somewhere in San Bruno.
Caldwell says he believes Zamora had been dead for several weeks when she was found.
