Woodside death investigated as homicide

Deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office are investigating the April 13 death of Parima Parineh, 56, of Woodside as a homicide, according to a report from the Sheriff's Office.

She lived with her husband and two adult children on Fox Hill Road in the Woodside hills, according to Lt. Ray Lunny of the Sheriff's Office.

Upon arriving home around 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 13, Pooroushasb (Peter) Parineh, Ms. Parineh's husband, discovered his wife's body in a bedroom and called 911 to report that she had shot herself, Lt. Lunny said. Medics from the Woodside Fire Protection District declared Ms. Parineh dead.

After investigating the evidence and conducting an autopsy, authorities concluded that "the injury suffered by the victim was not self inflicted," and are treating the case as a homicide, Lt. Lunny said.

There were no signs of forced entry nor were there indications that the suspect is a stranger, deputies said. Detectives are attempting to interview all the members of the family but they are not being cooperative, deputies said.

Deputies are asking that anyone with information call Detective Hector Acosta or Detective Saul Lopez at the Sheriff's Office at 363-4911, or call the anonymous witness line at 800-547-2700.
