Eddie Goldbaum

Colton Police responded to a report of a possible suicidal subject in the 1300 block of North Christobal Lane in Colton, CA. Colton Police contacted Eddie Goldbaum (22) at the residence.  They discovered a large amount of blood at the location and in Goldbaum’s vehicle suggesting someone was severely injured. Detectives from Colton and Fontana Police interviewed Goldbaum which led detectives to the dead end of Acacia south of Valley in the City of Colton.  A 44-year-old female from Fontana was located deceased at the scene from an apparent gunshot.  Detectives were sent to Boyle east of Hemlock in the City of Fontana, where the shooting was alleged to have occurred.  Officers located evidence of the shooting on Boyle.

Detectives arrested Goldbaum for homicide and transported him to the West Valley Detention Center for booking.  Preliminary information suggests Goldbaum and the victim know each other.  No additional suspects are outstanding in this case.   

Anyone with information regarding this case are urged to contact the Fontana Police Department's Investigations Unit (909) 350-7720.
