Daughter held in murder of mom, 92

A 64-YEAR-OLD Irvine woman was arrested Tuesday morning in Huntington Beach for the Sept. 4 murder of her 92-year-old mother.

A 64-year-old Irvine woman was arrested Tuesday morning for the murder last month of her 92-year-old mother, a Huntington Beach resident.


According to Officer Angela Bennett of the HBPD, Cynthia Roberta Strange was booked into Huntington Beach Jail and held without bail.

On Sept. 4, HBPD officers went to a home in the 6800 block of Vista Del Sol Drive to check on the welfare of Ruth Strange after a citizen called to tell police they were unable to contact her after going to her home to pick her up for a doctor’s appointment.

Police entered the home and found Ruth dead and detectives began investigating the case due to “suspicious circumstances.” Over the next four weeks, detectives developed information and evidence leading to the Cynthia Strange as the suspect, according to Bennett.

The investigation is ongoing and no other information was released on Tuesday.
