Notorious drug house goes up in flames

Home on Rancho Encinitas Drive has history of search warrants and arrests

Emergency personnel responded to reports of a fire at 3:45 a.m. yesterday at a home located at 1507 Rancho Encinitas Drive.

The home was known to law enforcement as the target of search warrants and arrests for drugs and other offenses on multiple occasions, most recently two weeks ago, on July 14. Neighbors had complained about strange goings-on at the address for years, according to authorities.

After the flames had been extinguished, a bomb/arson team began their investigation and subsequently found a body, according to a sheriff’s statement. “As they searched the house, they discovered an unknown deceased female in the second story of the house,” according to Lieutenant Mark Moreno.

As of this morning, July 31, the San Diego County Medical Examiner has declared the deceased person to be a 23-year-old female, who “was found in an upstairs bedroom.” The Medical Examiner stated that her “identity is yet to be confirmed.”

The reputed owner of the home, Anastasia Kirkeby, 49, is currently free on bond after her arrest last December. She was charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest and meth possession, according to courthouse records. She is next scheduled to be in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse on August 24, 2015.

Hope she didn't have any insurance.

You shouldn't be so Rude! just because someone has a drug problem doesn't make them any less of a human being!

Aug. 2, 2015

Given the history of the house, this wasn't just another accidental residential fire. Those are rare nowadays, anyway. So, I'd anticipate that some sort of criminal charges should be coming out of this tragedy (any death is a tragedy for the deceased, and for family members, friends, etc.) But then again, with the current DA, you never know about prosecutions. So, we can wait for further revelations about just what happened, and what comes next.

I agree!!!

I was very sad to hear that the dog died.

Aug. 1, 2015

REALLY??? "It was very sad to hear that the dog died?!?!" Who the hell cares about the DOG a HUMAN life was lost also I would rather have my FRIEND back than that DOG any day!

Aug. 2, 2015

Yes, really. I don't care that a druggie made a choice to get herself dead. I very much care that a dog that had no choice in the matter died.

I've had first-hand experience with a F*CKING tweaker. The inside of my house was trashed, I was ripped off AND the icing on the cake, I am permanently disabled (nearly lost MY life) and live in CONSTANT pain, thanks to a lying, thieving tweaker. So yeah, my comment stands. Sorry, not sorry.

The woman who died in the house was named Shelby Ann Black, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's website. Her cause of death was "third and fourth degree thermal burns and inhalation of products of combustion," according to the Medical Examiner, and the manner of death was declared to be "accident."

Aug. 5, 2015

Court records show that in 2011, Shelby Ann Black was charged with stolen vehicle and under the influence of meth and possession of meth and possession of hypodermic syringe. She admitted stealing the vehicle (reportedly from her mother) and the under-influence charge; she got 3 years probation in August 2011. Her case was transferred from San Diego County to Riverside County in May 2012; at that time Shelby Ann Black listed an address on Coyote Hill Court in Murrieta as her residence.
