LIVERMORE, Calif. - A woman's last words may have helped lead investigators to a man and a woman, who were arrested Monday afternoon in connection to her death.
The 19-year-old Tracy woman was found stabbed and crawling along a rural East Bay road early Monday.
Alameda County Sheriff's investigators, with help from Modesto police and the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department, arrested the two suspects, both 19, in Modesto. Their names were not released.
The woman reportedly said the name of a Modesto man before she died at Eden Medical Center about 4:30 a.m. Monday.
The bleeding woman, whose name has not been released, had crawled the length of a football field along freezing, pitch black, Tesla Road sometime after 2 a.m. when police say she was dumped there from a car.
A passing motorist spotted her and called 911.
The woman was flown in a helicopter to the trauma center at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, where she was pronounced dead about two hours later, police said.
Investigators remain on the scene and have asked the public to avoid the area, which has road closures. Police say Corral Hollow Road, which turns into Tesla Road, is closed between Interstate 580 near Tracy and Reuss Road near Livermore.
