Police Investigating Death at Church Parking Lot

A woman was found deceased inside a recreational vehicle parked at the Vineyard Church lot off North Livermore Avenue.

A woman was found dead Tuesday morning inside a recreational vehicle parked at the Vineyard Christian Fellowship lot off North Livermore Avenue, near Park Street, authorities said.

Police are investigating the death and said there were no obvious signs of trauma or suspicious activity related to the incident.

Emergency crews were sent to the area at 6:30 a.m. for a report of a woman not breathing. When authorities arrived on scene it was confirmed the woman was deceased, Livermore Police Sgt. Paul Mayer said.

An Alameda County coroners van arrived to the scene around 10 a.m. The coroners office will schedule an autopsy to determine the cause of death, police said.

Officials at this time are not releasing the woman's identity.

The church is home to programs that support the area's homeless by offering free hot meals, showers and clothing. During the cold winter nights, the church is one of several places in town homeless can find shelter overnight.

Wow. This is ridiculous. C nor myself NEVER said a "heartless" statement. C asked a normal question and she is being called heartless. I commented that it was JUST a questiion and now I am being chastized? I'm sure C as myself are sorry for everyone's loss but do you all really need to keep this going? Talk about ignorant people. Let it go. Geeesh

I'm sorry for you loss but I'm going to have to agree with C and her question, if my daughter or son where ever homeless or needed help I would invite them back into my house until they can get back on there feet instead of leave them homeless to basically die. Don't even begin to call me heartless because I am sorry for you loss but if it was my kid, they would have never been homeless in the first place because they can always come back home.

To those who are questioning the family's course of action, please consider this: Even if assistance is offered or provided, an adult is not required to accept. I can imagine being in the position of having a loved one refuse help and the helplessness I would feel if they chose to refuse. It sounds like Chris's family offered support, it was refused and an unthinkable thing happened. With media as it is today, we are brought into this family's personal space and grief, and we should tread with kindness and understanding. It's one thing to have a question, but should you actually ask that question one-on-one to a grieving person? If not, don't ask it in an anonymous posting. May time bring Chris's family comfort in the knowledge their girl is in a better place. Please accept my condolences.

Wow you people are nuts a mother lost a child someone asks a question and many of you freak out.... this is America a person does have the right to speak their mind... If you are easily offended by what you read.... DON'T read it... an easy response would have been we tried to do everything we could. I doubt any of us are beyond reproach and have no business demanding that others go fourth and repent. Sorry for the loss of your child.
