Nipomo woman died from blunt force trauma, investigators say

February 18, 2021

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office determined a 68-year-old woman who was found dead in her Nipomo home last year died from blunt force trauma.

On May 27, 2020, deputies responding to a 911 call at a home on the 100 block of Tefft Street found Debra Glenn’s body. Deputies determined her death was suspicious.

Investigators are still awaiting a toxicology report, as they investigate the death.

The sheriff’s department is not releasing any further information at this time.

What is interesting is how the Covid pandemic has ether brought out the best or the worst in people. Ive seen folk really trying to get away with as little work as possible using the pandemic as cover for simple sloth. It’s almost perfect to get paid to do nothing, why work harder? Seen that in government, but harming the private sector as businesses trying to reopen can’t coax their employees back to work. The ” I want to feel safe” excuse is just that, an excuse for many.

A death in May and we are just figuring it out? Thank goodness our crack staff LE is on the case. Seems like there must be more to the story behind the scenes, to explain the delays?

And toxicology typically takes under six weeks even if you have to ship samples to multiple specialty labs (OD lab, poison lab, enviro-toxicity lab) for a really thorough chemical work up.

Where’s our new and well-paid coroner M.E. on this matter? I’d like better closure for this family.
