Area Businessman Arrested in Connection with Death of Unborn Baby NR09514jr

Los Angeles: On October 25, 2009, Wilshire Area Homicide Detectives arrested 37-year-old Joshua Woodward in connection with the death of an unborn baby.

On October 19, 2009, the Los Angeles Police Department completed an Injury Report to capture the suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage.  The miscarriage occurred in approximately the thirteenth week of gestation.  Joshua Woodward is believed to have been the biological father of the baby.

Wilshire Area Homicide investigators established probable cause to arrest Woodward in connection with the death of the unborn baby.  At about 3:15 a.m. this morning, Woodward was arrested in the 3600 Block of  West 3rd Street without incident.  Woodward was booked at the Wilshire Jail for Penal Code Section 187 – Murder, where he is currently held in lieu of $2 million bail.      

Detectives are continuing to analyze evidence and will present the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday October 27, 2009.  No further statements are expected prior to a review by prosecutors.

Woodward is believed to have ties to Miami and Chicago.  Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Wilshire Area Homicide Detectives at 213-473-0446.  After hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text "CRIMES" with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on "Web Tips."  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with "LAPD." Tipsters may remain anonymous.
