Dead Body Found in Downtown San Rafael Parking Garage

 By Bay City News Service

A dead body was found inside a parking garage in San Rafael's downtown area Saturday morning, a police sergeant said.

Police say no foul play is suspected in connection with the death.

The body was located in the parking garage at the corner of C and Third streets around 7:30 a.m., Sgt. Raul Aguilar said.

Aguilar said the body was found on the ground inside the garage, which was shut down as police conducted an investigation this morning.

The garage reopened around 10 a.m.

The Marin County coroner's office is set to perform an autopsy on the body on Monday to determine the cause of death.

We will post any updates when we get additional information. I just got off the phone with Sgt. Aguilar to see if there was an update, but at this point we're just waiting for the coroner to complete their investigation and ID the body. Aguilar reiterated there doesn't appear to be any foul play or "criminal activity" associated with the death. Also, there weren't any vehicles near the body.

One wonders if this body was of a man or a woman, and one presumes it's of an adult.

Update: Just checked in with the Marin County Sheriff's Office Department Coroner Division and the investigation of the death is expected to take at least four to six weeks while they wait for toxicology reports. The autopsy has been performed, but coroner division officials won't discuss the case until the investigation is complete and the cause of death has been determined.

Surely they know if it's a man or a woman???

why is this not suspicious ? the authorities are acting like business as usual. or are they just trying not to alarm us that a homeless individual died in a public facility?
