Does this sound familiar to some other incident up north west by the ocean with another woman dying? More so in this story that this is calm bay water we are talking about. Coincidences like this are difficult to render at first glance.

Really? A highly intoxicated teenager on the coast with a boat load of drunken teens suffers a traumatic fall from the bluffs, an elderly woman unfortunate enough to be, well, elderly with the natural and unavoidable pitfalls that come with being elderly, like natural diseases and decreased strength dies while hiking? Then there's this poor woman in this article, which was obviously released too soon. The investigation isn't even over, yet somehow people are trying to speculate on a cause of death and connect invisible dots to other deaths?

How about this? Maye about ten people died in the last month at Marin General from pneumonia or cancer. Call CSI, it's a mysterious series of deaths!

I think speculation about the deaths of three women in massively different age brackets dying in Marin of painfully different circumstances are more that able to be rendered non-coincidental.

Way to go there with the defensiveness. That's why it was put as a question, not as an opinion of any fact.

Cases of 2 women missing from West Marin beaches remain a mystery
Brent Ainsworth
Posted: 02/17/2010 05:27:52 PM PST

The search has stalled for two women who went missing at West Marin beaches within two weeks of each other, the chief parks ranger at the Point Reyes National Seashore said Wednesday.
Alameda resident Katherine Truitt, 37, disappeared from McClures Beach on Jan. 9, and Nicasio resident Silvia Lange, 77, has not been seen since Jan. 24, when she went for a hike at North Beach.

"It makes everyone frustrated - the families, the friends, the rangers and the investigators," said David Schifsky, chief ranger at the National Parks Service's office in Olema.

Two park service investigators spent about a week in West Marin handling the cases and are now back at their respective offices, Schifsky said. "They have followed any leads that have come to us," he said. "There is nothing new to report."

Friends and families congregated on the coast as search-and-rescue efforts took place in the days after each woman was reported missing. Initially there were worries about possible abductions or "sneaker" waves pulling them into the ocean. Schifsky described that as "total speculation."

"Officially they are missing persons," Schifsky said.

Truitt's brown Ford Ranger pickup was found parked at McClures Beach, about 11 miles northwest of Inverness. The beach is near the tip of the Point Reyes peninsula and is accessible only by a short, steep hike. Truitt's family told investigators that she had hiked the area on and off for 20 years.

Lange's car was found at the North Beach parking area with two dogs in it, and another dog was found nearby with its leash wedged into some rocks. North Beach does not have rocky outposts, but has waves that can be just as dangerous as those in rocky coves, rangers said during the search.
Lange was a retired nurse and renowned hike leader at Angel Island State Park.

Dear Moron Citizen, see a pattern. Read this cut and paste: FAIRFIELD
Missing woman's body found in Napa County

By ASSOCIATED PRESS

Last Modified: Tuesday, May 11, 2010 at 4:03 a.m.
The body of a young woman found on the side of a highway in rural Napa County was identified as that of a missing nurse who disappeared just days shy of her 25th birthday, according to the Solano County Coroner.

Officials used fingerprints to positively identify Bichphuong "Phuong" Le, of Suisun City, on Monday. She had been killed, authorities said, but they didn't specify how.

No suspects have been identified, but the investigation is progressing, said Fairfield police Lt. Darrin Moody.

"We have not ruled out anything," he said, adding, "I wouldn't classify it as well on our way to an arrest. I will say we have information that we are moving forward on."

Her body was found Friday in a rural part of Napa County near Lake Berryessa by a woman walking her dog. The 24-year-old nurse had finished her studies in December. She had been missing since April 25.

Her car was found in the parking lot of a Barnes & Noble bookstore Monday morning. Her cell phone and backpack were still in the trunk.

Hundreds attended a candlelight vigil Friday at Solano Community College, where Le had been a student. She would have turned 25 that day.

Comon cents
If 10 people died in the last week at Marin Hospital, that would not be unusal.
If 3 woman (the two in Pt Reyes and now this one in Saualito) were either found dead or missing near the water, I think it is only common sence that there may be a nefarious connection
What do you say common cents?

And this one too, although it involves a man and a woman.

Bodies of man, woman found near Lake County road

Published: Friday, March 5, 2010 at 4:08 p.m.
Last Modified: Friday, March 5, 2010 at 4:08 p.m.
The bodies of a man and a woman were discovered Thursday down an embankment east of Lower Lake, Lake County Sheriff's authorities reported Friday.

The deaths are considered suspicious, said Sheriff's Capt. James Bauman.

They appear to have been at the location for at least several weeks, he said.

The causes of their deaths and their identities are yet to be determined, he said. Autopsies are scheduled for next week, Bauman said.

Two Sonoma County men driving on Morgan Valley Road from the Lake Berryessa area discovered the bodies when they stopped at a turnout to take a break, Bauman said.

The bodies were in brush about 20-feet down the embankment, he said.

The men drove to the Lower Lake Fire Station to report what they'd found, then led officials to the location, Bauman said.

Officials continue to process the scene, he said.

No other information is available at this time, Bauman said.

Could the killer wear/show a stolen ranger uniform or badge? How else is he able to get so close to people camping and hiking?
