Abel Gutierrez

Authorities said Thursday morning that the body of a middle-aged woman – likely Martha Gutierrez, 52, who police believe was shot and killed by her son Abel Gutierrez March 14 – has been located near Pacheco Pass Highway where it meets Highway 156.

At the end of a scheduled press conference around 10:30 a.m. for the missing teen Sierra LaMar in Morgan Hill, Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith announced that a body has been found near Highway 152 (Pacheco Pass) and Highway 156 in the east hills of Gilroy.

Smith said the news came just then around 10:30 a.m. and she asked that TV news present at the conference turn off their cameras.

Smith said they did not find the body looking for 15-year-old Sierra LaMar who has been missing since last Friday. The searches were unrelated.

More details to come.
