SAN DIEGO (COUSSI) – Authorities on Thursday publicly identified a suspect in a knife attack on a Mira Mesa home that left an 87-year-old dead and her 60-year-old daughter seriously injured.
Murder detectives believe Anthony Dwayne Siddle, 59, attacked Peggy Brandenburgh and the youngest woman at their home in the 8600 block of Pagoda Way just before 3pm last Friday, according to the San Diego Police Department.
Brandenburg died on the spot. Her daughter, whose name was not released, was hospitalized in critical condition.
“Evidence shows that the suspect was familiar with the home and (that) it was not an accidental attack, although the motives are still being determined,” Lt. Jude Campbell said Thursday afternoon.
Campbell said he could not provide further details on any relationship or previous contacts between the suspect and the victims.
Siddle is believed to have escaped, possibly to Mexico, in a dark gray SUV Ford Ecosport 2018, to Montana with license number 103478E, according to police.
“Detectives have received an arrest warrant for Seattle,” Campbell said.
