Neighbors on edge after body found on Livermore hiking trail


LIVERMORE (KRON) — Walking down the dirt path when suddenly a grim discovery — the body of a man covered by shrubs and debris.

“Well, you know it makes people a little nervous about wanting to use the path obviously at least for a while,” said Livermore resident Kevin Gunn.

It happened Monday around 7:43 a.m. on a walking path next to the Arroyo Creek in Livermore.

That is when a person using the path discovered the body, flagged down a Livermore police patrol car and took the officers about 150-yards to the location where the dead man was found.

“I try to walk my dogs here,” Gunn said.

Gunn has used this trail for the past 13 years.

He says has never heard of anything like this happening here.

“My wife talked about it, not being real happy with me using the path until things get sorted out,” he said.

On Tuesday, Livermore police investigators were seen going door-to-door on arroy road looking for any leads or witnesses. Gunn says police knocked on his door as wel.

l “The police questioned my daughter. I know that much. She said she didn’t know too much to tell them,” Gunn said.

Livermore police investigators say the deceased man is a Livermore resident.

Police are preliminarily classifying his death as suspicious due to the lack of any obvious signs of blunt force trauma or foul play.

Identification is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
