UPDATE: Police say foul play may not be an issue in suspicious death

Coronor yet to confirm cause in death of 46-year-old Kimberley McCollough

Investigations continue today into the death of a 46-year-old Pleasanton woman although police now say that foul play does not appear to be involved in the case once ruled as suspicious.

Pleasanton police responded to a report of a medical emergency at her home in the 8000 block of Arroyo Drive at around 2 a.m. Saturday. Once there, they found Kimberley McCollough in a car outside the home. She had no pulse, was not breathing and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sgt. Jim Knox of the Pleasanton Police Department said Monday afternoon that police are still waiting on the Alameda County coroner's office to confirm a cause of death.

Knox said the home on Arroyo Drive was McCollough's home, but would not comment on her marital status or the relationship of the person who called police.

The case is still under investigation, Knox added, saying that he could not elaborate on details on how the incident would be considered suspicious.

Where did it say a car? I only read in the PW in her home? Was this an accident or homicide?

I heard on the radio that she was found in a car outside the home. The same report also said that homicide detectives were being brought in to work on the case.

This happened right around the corner from where I live so it is a bit scary! I read that she was found in her car and that she lived alone but a guy who she knew for three weeks (and now staying with her) called the police at 2am. The article also said it was suspicious but they weren't sure the cause of death yet. It was still being turned over to homicide investigators. It is pretty scary when this happens in your neighborhood especially with so many children running around!

The police have said that "there doesn't seem to feel any signs of foul play."

I believe Medical Responders found her inside the car in the carport. They removed her to the carport entry doorway to provide proper care. I DO NOT FEEL this was a homicide and it's quite possible what makes this SUSPICIOUS is the T.O.D in relation to the 9-1-1 call. The police have stated that they do not feel trauma or foul play was involved.
