Vigil held for woman found dead in burning Los Angeles home

Family and friends have held a vigil for a woman who was found dead in her burning San Fernando Valley home.

Dozens gathered outside the Valley Village home of 34-year-old Chere Osmanhodzic Monday night.

Kim Foscaldo told KCAL-TV that Osmanhodzic was "like a ray of sunshine" when she walked into a room.

Police are hunting for a man who was seen running from the burning home Saturday night.

Her fiance told investigators he had gone to the store and returned to their home to find a man inside. He told police he chased the man several blocks before losing him. He returned to find the home in flames.

Firefighters found the woman's burned body after putting out the blaze.
