Detectives say they've solved the disturbing mystery of a woman found covered in blood near her Camarillo home last week.
They now believe the cutting wounds to her head were self-inflicted.
Last Thursday afternoon, a passerby on Barton Avenue found a woman in the street.
She was covered in blood from a wound to her head and there was a blood trail that led back to her home.
She was taken to the hospital.
When deputies went inside they found more blood and a bloody knife.
An investigation was launched into what happened and why and to determine if this was a crime or something else.
Adding to the difficulty of the investigation was the fact that the 63-year-old woman was at first unconscious.
When she regained consciousness, detectives discovered she spoke only Mandarin Chinese.
They say once they brought in a translator they determined her wound was self-inflicted.
