A Fremont woman was found dead early Wednesday inside a car filled with poisonous gas parked underneath her apartment complex, authorities said.
Authorities got a 911 call at 1:30 a.m. from the woman’s husband telling them he had found her in her car in the underground parking lot. He said there was a sign on the vehicle’s window reading ‘Poisonous Gas’.
Police said the woman apparently died of exposure to hydrogen sulfide fumes. Residents of the apartment complex were warned to shelter in place in their homes.
Investigators were on the scene to determine if the woman’s death was a suicide.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
