So the back story authorities discovered 84-year-old Afaf Anis Assad unconscious in a bathroom at the Pechanga Resort Casino. Upon finding Assad, investigators determined that she "may have been the victim of an assault." She was then transferred to a local hospital for a skull fracture suffered during a robbery where her purse was stolen. Assad died from her injuries a few days later.
The Resort President Jared Munoa said In a statement to CNN That:
"The suspects were quickly identified through surveillance footage and the information was immediately provided to local law enforcement," Munoa said. "We pride ourselves on putting the safety of our guests and Team Members first and are fully cooperating with law enforcement to bring these perpetrators to justice."
