Homicide thought to be a vicious attack

OCEANSIDE — The victim of a suspected vicious attack was found dead at Buddy Todd Park on Monday morning. The body of Mustafa Gordon, 24, was spotted just before 6 a.m. in the north end of the park and police responded to the scene.

The homicide is still under investigation. There were no gunshot wounds to the body. Obvious blunt force trauma indicates Gordon was beaten to death.

Gordon formerly served in the Army. He has had minor contacts with the law, but is not known to be affiliated with a gang, according to Oceanside Police Department officials.

He lived in the back gate neighborhood near Camp Pendleton. It is not known if he met someone at the park or was taken there.

Family members last saw him at midnight the night of his murder. Anyone with more information on the incident, or who knows of a troubling relationship Gordon was having are asked to call the Oceanside Police Department at (760) 435-4911.
