Update: The Sacramento County Coroner has positively identified the deceased female located along the American River as Linnea Lomax; Coroner's Office still investigating.
On September 07, 2012 at approximately 10:18 a.m., the Sacramento Police Department responded to a report of a dead body that was found near the 5400 block of Sandburg Drive. A volunteer search team was looking for missing person Linnea Lomax in the area of Glenn Hall Park. The team of searchers located a deceased person while in a heavily wooded area along the levee, just north of the park. The search team then notified the police.
Responding officers contacted the searchers and located what appeared to be a deceased female. Sacramento Police Department Homicide detectives were called out, as well as Crime Scene Investigators and the Sacramento County Coroner's Office to assist in the death investigation.
