Body found at Altamont Landfill outside Livermore

Death considered suspicious; little revealed about victim

A body was found Monday afternoon at the Altamont Landfill north of Interstate 580 east of Livermore, and it is considered a suspicious death, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office said Monday night.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the landfill, at 10480 Altamont Pass Road, about 2:15 p.m. Monday, after workers at the landfill found the body of an unidentified human being in one of the mounds of dumped garbage.

“It appears the body was likely discarded in the trash in another city and transported to the landfill where workers discovered it,” sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly said in a statement.

Foul play is suspected. No information on the identity or gender of the body, or how the person died, was available Monday night.
