    The first picture caption makes it seem as though Erin was found right there, and those people are within the tape. I wonder if it's those people who found her, and whether she was in fact still in her car, parked near that house.

    And if she was found in her car, I would lean to a medical event, symptoms of which may have exhibited by the mania and confusion earlier.

    I wonder about that as well. Definitely not the first time things like this happen.

    I have seen some posters saying she may have had a psychotic episode due to the phone calls. I am a bit late to this case, but reading this which seems to suggest she had no prior mental health history, this type of severity doesn't just spontaneously happen out of the blue.

    To me, this sounds like she had either willingly or unknowingly taken some illegal substance. Given she had prior to just been with a former colleague, they may provide a clue as to that.

    It's possible that she had a mini stroke as @MsFacetious mentioned. MOO

    I feel the same way. I suppose it's possible that she met someone that took advantage of her fragile state, but sadly I think it's much more likely her death involved a medical condition or self harm of some type, intentional or unintentional (drugs of some kind).

    That is a Lexus SUV. Definitely a modern Lexus “spindle” grill. Not even close to a Nissan Murano front end. JFYI

    If it did, I'm actually not surprised given how little people seemed to be aware down there (assuming this is in Almaden, which I suppose we don't have confirmation yet). No fliers anywhere I saw even in the area where her phone last pinged.

    MOO.

    The Twitter photo linked previously by the KPIX reporter is showing the scene from approximately this same view in Google StreetView

    I'm not sure about drugs, she seems too smart. A sudden change in cognitive function can occur. My daughter is a neuroscientist, she has come across such cases. An undiagnosed tumor in the brain, an aneurism ......?
    So very sad....

    Did the cops ever go search the area her phone pinged last?
