EAST BAY, CA Nov 7 2016– Two suspects have been arrested for the death of a 21-year-old San Leandro woman whose body was found in a creek at the Arroyo Viejo Recreation Center in East Oakland on Thursday, police said.
The Alameda County Sheriff's Office filed a missing person report for Karla Ramirez-Segoviano, a volunteer with the agency, on Wednesday.
She was found unresponsive at the park's entrance in the 7700 block of Krause Avenue just before noon on Thursday, Oakland police said.
The two suspects were arrested after an investigation by homicide investigators, patrol officers and crime reduction teams, police said.
"Karla was only 21 years old and was part of our youth explorer program, where we mentor and teach young people interested in law enforcement and public service careers," the Alameda County Sheriff's Office said. "Karla's death comes as a complete shock to us and it has deeply saddened our sworn, professional and volunteer staff."
Investigators will be forwarding the case to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office for review and charging, according to police.
Ramirez-Segoviano had last been seen at about 10 p.m. when she dropped off a friend on 136th Avenue in San Leandro.
Deputies located her vehicle at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday near Happyland Avenue and West A Street in Hayward, near Interstate Highway 880, but she has no known friends in that area, according to the sheriff's office.
Oakland police said they aren't releasing any additional information about the case, such as Ramirez-Segoviano's cause of death and the suspects' names, at this time.
"Karla's peers in the Explorer program are coping with the loss of a dear friend and leader," the Sheriff's Office said. "We ask that you keep Karla and her family in your prayers."
