OAKLAND -- Police are investigating a homicide in a residential neighborhood in East Oakland late Saturday morning.

Police responded to the 1700 block of 103rd Avenue around 10:50 a.m. where they found an unresponsive, unidentified woman. Paramedics declared the woman dead at the scene. Police said it was unknown how she was killed, but that there were signs of trauma to her body.

This is the second death police are investigating as a homicide in the past 24 hours. The crimes are not related, police said.

On Friday afternoon, Susan Fong, 77, died after after police found her and a 56-year-old male relative inside her apartment on the 1800 block of 34th Avenue.

Police said Fong appears to be a victim of a home invasion robbery, though investigators are still trying to determine if anything was taken from her home.

Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $10,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest of the killer in each case. Anyone with information may call investigators at 510-238-3821, a tip line at 510-773-2805 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
