PLEASANTON (CBS/AP) — Police still have not positively identified a woman’s body found in a trash can on a road near an upscale neighborhood in Pleasanton.
A preliminary autopsy was unable to determine an identity and that the body’s fingerprints could not immediately be traced through the California Department of Motor Vehicles records, according to Pleasanton Police Lt. Jeff Bretzing.
A man found the woman’s body on Thursday inside a 45-gallon plastic container near an upscale housing development on the 11000 block of Dublin Canyon Road, police said.
Police werre still investigating the incident as a homicide as it has not yet determined the woman’s age or ethnicity, said Bretzing.
Police also were confident that the body is not Sierra LaMar, the 15-year-old Morgan Hill girl who disappeared on March 16 when she left her home to go to school.
