61-year-old woman found drowned at her home

Foul play not expected

Police don't expect to find foul play in the apparent drowning death of a Pleasanton woman on Sunday.

The 61-year-old woman was found at her home in the 6000 block of Garner Court at about 5:30 p.m., said Pleasanton police Sgt. Kurt Schlehuber.

"She was found by her sister-in-law," Schlehuber said. "There were no signs of foul play."

The woman's name is being withheld until family members are notified.

He said the coroner has the woman's body and will perform an autopsy. Barring anything unusual, Schlehuber said, the death will be ruled accidental.
