2 arrested in brutal stabbing death of 19-year-old woman in Livermore

LIVERMORE (KRON) — Authorities tell KRON4 that two suspects have been arrested in Modesto after a 19-year-old Tracy woman was stabbed and dumped on a road near Livermore early Monday morning.

The woman was found with multiple stab wounds on Tesla Road, a remote back road in unincorporated Livermore, in the overnight hours, Kelly said.

She was air-lifted to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley but has died of her injuries, Sgt. Ray Kelly with Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said.

Kelly says the woman gave deputies crucial information before she died that led them to make the arrests.

“The last thing, that we believe, she was able to do was point us into the direction to the people that killed her,” Kelly said.

Investigators arrested a 19-year-old woman and man at a home in the 1000 block of Nadine, according to KRON4’s affiliate KTXL.

Investigators are calling this a “gruesome” and “gory” situation.

The woman had been stabbed several times, and her wounds are consistent with an assault, according to Kelly.

It appears she was dumped out of a car and left for dead.

She had the strength to cling to life, crawling along the road until a passerby spotted her and called the police.

A blood trail shows she pulled herself at least 100 yards, about the length of a football field.

When first responders arrived, they quickly decided the best option for her survival was to have her emergency air-lifted to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley.

She was pronounced dead at the hospital around 4:30 a.m.

Her identity is not being released out of respect for the family, who has just learned of her death themselves.


Initially, around 2:45 a.m., Dublin CHP issued a Sig-Alert for what was possibly a crash in the area.

By 4:00 a.m., officials reported the area had been closed off as a crime scene under investigation.

At that time, CHP announced Tesla Rd. was closed, along with Corral Hollow at westbound Interstate 580. Tesla is a popular freeway alternate for drivers traveling between Livermore and Tracy.

However, it is not well-traveled at night, leading police to believe whoever threw the girl from the car intended to leave her for dead.
