Second homeless person found dead in SLO County
January 13, 2012
A second homeless person was found dead in San Luis Obispo County, but authorities do not believe foul play is involved, Paso Robles Police said.
Police found no obvious signs of foul play on the body they found Thursday in a transient camp located on the west side of the Salinas Riverbed, near Sulfur Springs Road. The unidentified person appeared to have been dead for a significant amount of time with the body being in the advanced stages of decomposition, police said.
Last week, a San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s department cadaver dog, while searching for another person, located the body of a homeless man in a makeshift bed with cardboard walls under the dock in Oceano.
There were no signs of foul play and the body appeared to have been there several days, according to the responding coroner’s deputy.
