An explosion that rocked a Southern California medical building, killing the owner of a day spa and seriously injuring two patrons, is being investigated as a crime after federal officials found remnants of an explosive device inside the spa, officials said Wednesday.

Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes says the formal identification of the body was continuing but authorities believe it is that of Ildiko Krajnyak (IL-di-koh KRY-nyak), a licensed cosmetologist.

"At this point, we do not believe this was an accident", said Paul Delacourt, special agent in charge of the FBI's field office in Los Angeles.

"We do not know how the device arrived at the location", Delacourt said at the news conference.

Tony Dik, whose child attended the day care, told NBC that parents were anxious and emotional when they found out that the preschool was on the same road as the explosion.

At least three others were injured in the explosion Tuesday at the Aliso Viejo, Calif., facility, which blew out walls of the two-story building.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department stated in response to news reports: "Despite media reports quoting unnamed sources, we have not confirmed that the explosion is intentional, nor have we conclusively identified the source of the explosion".

"We can not say exclusively this explosion was intentional", Sawyer said.

CNN's law enforcement source also cautioned that the investigation was in its preliminary stages. Tony Bommarito. "We have an explosion, which is not a common thing".

"And the ground shook", he said.

Still, it is not yet known if she was the victim killed, as the coroner has not yet formally released the deceased woman's name.

"... They weren't on fire, they were helping each other across the street, walking very slowly and a lot of shock, shaking, just full of ash all over their face, eyes bloodshot, just blood all over", the woman said.

All businesses on Mareblu are closed today (May 16) while the investigation continues into the explosion that occurred on Tuesday.

"We have confirmed there was no vehicle inside", Bommarito said, adding there was an explosion inside the building.

Officials say other potential causes such as a gas leak have been ruled out. Fire officials say a third victim had smoke inhalation. McWilliams says one woman had skin peeling on her arm.

The Los Angeles Times reported investigators consider the blast suspicious, and may have resulted from a package delivered to the building. But sheriff's officials said the size of the blast made it suspicious.

Authorities provided no additional information about the search.

Authorities initially indicated a auto had crashed into the building, but Orange County Fire Authority Capt.

The sheriff's department is partnering with the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, who will assist the investigation.
