EMERYVILLE -- A woman found dead Thursday morning on the beach at Shorebird
Park was a Fremont resident who committed suicide, authorities said Friday.
The woman's name and age were not immediately released. Fremont officers had
taken a missing-person report Thursday about the woman and were told she had threatened to drown
herself in the Emeryville area.
The report was taken after the woman was found.
The woman was found by a passer-by about 7:14 a.m. Thursday, wet and clothed on
park's beach, near Interstate 80 off Powell Street next to Chevy's Restaurant.
It was not known how long she had been in the beach before being found.
