Original post made on Aug 2, 2012

The Alameda County Coroner's Office has identified the woman whose body was found in the brush last week near the East Dublin/Pleasanton BART station parking structure as Joy Ann Grammatica, 48, of Livermore. A coroner's report says the death was due to "multiple blunt force trauma" consistent with a jump from the parking garage.

What? A suicide? Do you have video footage that shows her jumping? Because that is the only way I believe you can justify the statements of investigating it as a "suicide". If so, please let the rest of the world know, because there are a lot of people believing otherwise. She was a happy woman, in love with her partner of 21 years and their 6 year old son, whom she loved with all her heart and soul. Someone please say something in reference to the autopsy results and or surveillance results in the area near the body's discovery.

I agree with anonymous, Joy was a caring, loving, full of life human being. She loved her family (wife) and her son dearly, as well as her immediate family that she was very very close too. I for one do not believe for one second that she would take her life. Her father passed away on Tuesday and she and her family were just processing the loss, then on Thursday Joy is gone...???? No way, I have known this lady for over 30 years and this goes against everything that she believed in

This article and the others I have read are very one sided, and I am assuming it is because there is so much more information that cannot be released to the public... for example - was she going to work? did she park there? was her jewelry on her person? where is her car? key? etc.... look I realize all these things cannot be disclosed, but in the same token, for me and many of her close friends and family to see "investigating apparent suicide" it is just so devastating ... unknown cause what have probably been the better terminology...

Again, I have confidence and respect in the police department to do their job, but the verbiage is where I get frustrated!
