ENCINITAS, Calif. -- Authorities Wednesday identified a homicide victim whose body was recently found in Encinitas.

Deputies found the body of Sabrina Lukosky, 43, in a backhouse behind a home in the 1200 block of Summit Avenue around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday after a neighbor reported a foul smell coming from the property, according to San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office said Wednesday that Lukosky was a victim of homicide.

Lukosky was reported as missing to the Sheriff's Department on October 3. Friends say they hadn't heard from Lukosky in weeks and knew something was wrong.

Those close to her say Lukosky was gentle -- she loved flowers and butterflies. It was at a butterfly farm in Encinitas where she met her boyfriend about one year ago. She lived with that man at the home in Cardiff where she was found.

When Lukosky was reported missing, her friends say they tried to search for her. When they reached the house to look for signs of Lukosky, they found a crime scene instead.

The Sheriff's Department has not identified any person of interest in the case but asks anyone with information about Lukosky's death to contact them. Lukosky's friends told FOX 5 they are urging police to investigate her boyfriend.
