SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Police said they found the body of a 25-year-old mother of two who disappeared from her Southern California home last week, and her ex-husband was arrested as the primary suspect.

Rachel Castillo disappeared Thursday, and relatives reported they discovered blood at her Simi Valley apartment, where she had left behind her phone, keys and car, police said.

“Based on evidence at the scene, officers suspected that a crime involving serious injury occurred,” the Simi Valley Police Department said in a news release.
