Homeless Death Near Parkway

As reported by the Sacramento Bee.

An excerpt.

Just before 6 a.m. Tuesday, the Sacramento Police Department received a call that the body of a homeless woman was found near Northgate Boulevard and the Arden-Garden Connector.

Sgt. Bryce Heinlein said officers believe the woman lived in a nearby encampment.

“A lot of the transient community lives here,” Heinlein said. “As a precaution, we called in our homicide team and investigators. We treat it ‘worst-case scenario,’ and we pull back resources if it’s natural causes,” he said.
