Why would Monterey county coroner be looking at this body???????

Good question.
Maybe the woman is from that county?

About Alviso, would you think the current would pull a body to the bridge from there?
It seems quite populated there.
What is the likely hood of remaining undetected?

Are there access roads in the reserve?

Here is the google map of Point Diablo, Marin County, CA:

It's on the Marin County side of the Golden Gate Bridge, and the access roads appear to be in white in this first map:

It's in the Golden Gate National Recreation area, and is the location of the Point Diablo Light, visible on the satellite zoom view here:

via maps.google.com search parameter: Point Diablo, CA
IMO, it looks pretty remote....

Here goes:

"Iron Mountain is a mountain in the San Gabriel Mountains of Los Angeles County, California. Sometimes referenced as Iron Mountain #1 or Big Iron, the 8,007 ft (2,441 m) peak was originally called Sheep Mountain by the early miners in San Gabriel Canyon because of the large bands of bighorn sheep that roamed the slopes."

Interestingly, google maps pegs the GPS coordinates as it as Mount Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountain range. Here is your map:

I haven't found anything new. The media is still reporting the same story with the addition of the Point Diablo location.

The Monterey County Coroner would not release further information about the body, pending identification and notification to the woman's next of kin.

Tamta- I also noticed 101 is almost a straight shot. Waiting, waiting....

I was reading back through the articles on the red Jetta when I had a light bulb moment. Cardoza made many statements that the red Jetta was caught on video surveillance from residential and business areas and bus stops. What if Sierra was also captured that morning on this residential video surveillance? Maybe in past video she was seen getting in the Jetta?

The association between the red, mid-1990s Jetta Volkswagen and the LaMar case is based on March 16 surveillance footage from residential cameras near the LaMar home, from nearby businesses and from the bus stop Sierra would catch to Sobrato High. Time and again, the red Volkswagen was captured near the LaMar home and other areas of interest, like the fields where Sierra’s cell phone and Juicy bag were found.

“The vehicle was seen more than once as being in the area where Sierra’s mom’s house is and other areas where evidence was found,” Cardoza said.

Cardoza said it’s “more than a coincidence” that places the vehicle in the area around Sierra’s north Morgan Hill home about the time she disappeared, and the link is supported by eye-witness sightings of the car and surveillance camera footage from residential and business areas and bus stops.

Sheriff's investigators searched for a red late model Volkswagen Jetta Monday that surveillance video has linked to the kidnapping of Morgan Hill teenager Sierra LaMar. Sheriff's Sgt. Jose Cardoza said statements by witnesses combined with investigative review of video surveillance sources helped them identified a vehicle associated to Sierra’s disappearance.

“It was observed in the area where she was last seen on March 16,” he told reporters. “(It was seen) near her mom’s house and near where some of the evidence was found. We’re not going to say exactly where the car was observed.”

“During the day and time in the morning when Sierra disappeared it was observed then,” he added. The car was described as a mid-1990s four-door red Jetta with a black roof. Investigators were asking anyone who may have seen a vehicle matching that description near LaMar’s Morgan Hill home to contact police.

BBM.

Maybe in past video she was seen getting in the Jetta?

Just clarifying:

Lash, do you mean seen getting into that car before in the past, that is at another moment in time before her disappearance?

Tamta- Yes that is what I meant to relay, maybe before Sierra disappeared she was captured on video getting into the Jetta? I think both are possibilities. Maybe she was seen on residential video the morning she disappeared.

Well maybe.
Maybe it is simply a red jetta that she was connected to at some point.

Since she was still relatively new there in MH, I would assume that most contacts she would have would be related to school.
MH is very rural, but I do not know what Sobrato HS area is like, meaning if there are shops eateries etc near by where she may have come into contact with a non-school person.

How much time would she have between dismissal and bus departure to put herself in a situation to meet with outsiders?
(She was reported by ML to have normally gotten home around the 4-430pm mark? School out between 240-320pm maybe?, will have to check distance on google for commute.)

A ride over to SObrato HS parking lot or general area during school hours to scan for a red jetta may be interesting, as well as Washington HS lot.

It could have been a red jetta observed and whether or not what was actually observed initially is indeed the car that was apprehended, around end of march perhaps with those characteristics, is not actually known.

We have not seen any real footage nor any LE officer next to that stolen car released by LE as the one apprehended by them and in their possession.

I am interested in this residential video surveillance. Did any of this video capture Sierra alive walking to the bus stop that morning? Was Sierra seen on video leaving the house that morning? If the car was seen "near the Lamar home" was Sierra also seen?

It is a great question.
Was she ever seen on res camera on other school mornings at the bus stop?

Why would that not be known or public knowledge at this point?

Today is the San Francisco Bay to Breakers Race. I wonder if that has anything to do with the Monterey County Coroner covering for the SF coroner? Definitely makes me wonder if they want to minimize publicity about the body found at the Point until after the big weekend. Just a thought.....

I figured it out. It does make you question why Monterey when the body was found in San Francisco. Even then there are 2 counties before Monterey, San Mateo and Santa Cruz. Maybe even Santa Clara.

-snipped-

Coroners and medical examiners both deal with death, and the two titles are often used interchangeably as a result. This usage is technically incorrect, since the job descriptions are actually very different. The qualifications for becoming a medical examiner are radically more strenuous than those for becoming a coroner, and the two go about their jobs in very different ways.

A medical examiner is a licensed physician who specializes in forensic pathology. When a death merits an autopsy, a medical examiner performs the autopsy and records the findings. Although medical examiners form an important part of a law enforcement team, they do not necessarily decide the course of an investigation or prosecution of a suspect. Because a medical examiner's job is based on professional skill, he or she is an appointed official.

Showing my age, but just think of the show "Quincy, M.E." and you know what a medical examiner does!! :) Of course, he interjected more investigative prowess and interest than any real M.E. would, but I like to think that's what a M.E. does. :) My fav show growing up!! I think I missed my calling. :)

Sierra LaMar: Anatomy of a Search Day 47

Somewhere out there a goon who does or doesn’t drive a red Jetta with a black hood has created an intolerable situation that only he/they can end. Was he born without conscience or is he a product of his environment? Does hate and destruction come naturally or did he hone his demonic skill set over time?

Search Tactics For Missing Morgan Hill Teen Gain International Attention


The two-month old case and some of its high-tech methods is now getting worldwide attention, including coverage from the BBC.

BBC reporter Matt Danzico said, from the command center, that the technological ways the family is searching for the missing 15-year-old is what interests them.

Stolat - Thank you. I bookmarked most of the articles concerning the Jetta. I went through them yesterday and I don't recall anything about getting in and out of the Jetta. I will search the articles again using those key words.

I'm really interested in knowing if Sierra was on any of the residential video surveillance maybe walking to school that morning or even mornings before she disappeared. If she is on video, I have no idea why that information would not have been released. I may just be hoping there is video of a healthy live Sierra leaving home that morning.

Hi Tamta-

I deleted my screenshot. I can't take credit for the diagram. It is a cool website that does all the work for you. All you do is play around with different street names. You don't need a street number. Start with Palm Ave, Morgan Hill, Ca 95037. The *blue* connecting street names that will pull from your query can be clicked on to open addresses on that street. Have fun!

This is the post (twitlonger) via @hotsteno shared by Honeysage upthread....
"I wanted to put in a good word for the Grass Farm workers today. They were working at the Kalana site on 3/16, all present and accounted for since 4-5a. I have gotten to know them in the last month or so. They are as upset as anyone about Sierra's disappearance. They watched her walk -- or run, as she was often late -- to the bus each morning. They gave her a nickname even, "Nana." Sierra was a part of their daily routine, and when she disappeared, they knew immediately who she was and were devastated by her loss.

LE has not exactly been kind to them throughout this process, I'm sad to say. They are our good neighbors too, and we have welcomed them into our homes and on the neighborhood website. Some of them have even been living there as long as I have.

SEARCH SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY

Suspect taken into custody in Sierra La Mar case


Garcia-Torres, a resident of San Martin, is the owner of the red VW Jetta that authorities sought and seized in connection with the case on May 8th.
Garcia-Torres was being questioned about the disappearance of the 15-year old girl from Morgan Hill.
At the Santa Clara County sheriff's office Monday night, there were high hopes that the arrest is the break investigators have needed to solve the disappearance of Sierra La Mar.
A KTVU camera crew was at the Safeway store on Tenant Avenue in Morgan Hill at around 6 p.m. when sheriff's detectives took Garcia-Torres, a store employee, into custody.
KTVU followed the detectives to the sheriff's headquarters in San Jose and were outside at around 9 p.m. when detectives took Torres to the main county jail.
Sources tell KTVU detectives questioned Garcia-Torres for two hours about the missing teenager, trying to find out her location.
Authorities were mum when pressed for more details.
Sources said there is some DNA evidence linking Garcia-Torres to the clothing found in Sierra La Mar's backpack.

Glad they got someone, but sad about the murder charge.

I hope we will find out more then at the press conference. I feel sorry for Sierra's mother and father and all her family. There must have been some pretty damning DNA evidence in that vehicle for the murder charges. I hope the PERP at least tells LE where Sierra is.

Suspect in custody in Sierra LaMar case

Henry K. Lee

Monday, May 21, 2012

In a statement, Cardoza said, "Detectives believe Garcia-Torres is responsible for Sierra LaMar's disappearance."

The suspect attended Central High School in Morgan Hill and does not have a serious criminal history except for a 2009 arrest for resisting arrest, the television station reported. He had worked at a Safeway store on Tennant Avenue in Morgan Hill where he was arrested about 6 p.m.

On May 7, sheriff's investigators released a photograph of a red VW Jetta and asked the public if anyone had seen the car around the time Sierra disappeared on March 16. A day later, authorities acknowledged that they already had the car in custody but were still seeking tips.

Cardoza has said that investigators had focused on the car because of witnesses' descriptions and from viewing surveillance video from homes, businesses and buses in Sierra's neighborhood.

The Jetta was seen in the general area of where Sierra lives near Morgan Hill and where her belongings were found after she vanished, Cardoza said.

Just got finished watching KNBC11. Sheriff Smith said, "We have proabable cause to believe gthat he committed the kidnapping and murder of Sierra Lamar." When asked further if they believe that she is alive, Sheriff Smith said, "The charge is murder." And when pressed further about if she thought Sierra was alive, she said "no" and urged the reporters to wait until tomorrow morning when they will hold the press conference. Sierra's family will be present at the press conference.

Garcia-Torres is the registered owner of the red Jetta and has connections to addresses in both Morgan Hill and San Martin.

I do wonder if this was completely random, or if he knew her in some way.

In any event, my prayers go out to the family.

I'm new to posting here. I've been reading and not joining into the conversation. I'm wondering if the female they found in the water is Sierra and that's why the arrest came down? I have a feeling they suspected it was Garcia-Torres all along but were waiting to arrest him to ensure a conviction. It's harder to convict without a body. It sounds like they were monitoring him night and day.

He looked so arrogant when he came out of the police station on the news video.

Suspect arrested in Sierra LaMar case

Updated at 11:36 PM today


Sierra LaMar

"He was arrested around 6 p.m. at the Safeway store where he works at Tennant Ave. in Morgan Hill. Investigators questioned him for several hours and he is being held at the Santa Clara County jail.

"It was about 5:30, I was at work and we just saw a bunch of cops and guns drawn and I couldn't see anyone if they took him away. I just saw the cops, it was just cops and cop cars, it was all really fast," said Bobby Fox, a witness at Safeway.

Over the past week, investigators sorted through tips that come in after last week's episode of "America's Most Wanted" that featured Sierra's case. Some callers reported having seen the red VW Jetta.

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said, "He was arrested today because this is how we thought that the arrest should be done and public safety is our number one concern. We don't want anyone else hurt. We don't want any more little girls taken."
