The Butte County Sheriff's Office has identified the woman found dead near a Rose Avenue home Monday morning as 55-year-old Cass Jean Edison.
The Chico woman's death is being investigated as a homicide and authorities have arrested Christopher Swihart Sr. in connection with Edison's murder.
A man found Edison's body in a work trailer outside his home off Rose Avenue in West Chico. The trailer was registered to Swihart, and Edison was last seen on security footage getting into his truck.
Detectives are still trying to locate Swihart's truck which has been described as a 1989 primer grey Chevy pick-up with a white or chrome tool box in the truck bed. The truck has a California license plate that reads 8E28926.
If you find the vehicle you are urged to call the sheriff's office
