Albany police are investigating the death of a 43-year-old woman found earlier in the month near a homeless encampment on the Albany Bulb.
Officers found the body of Jane D. Owens on the morning of Feb. 7 after receiving a tip by telephone from someone on the Bulb, according to Karina Tindol, Albany Police Department's community engagement specialist.
Tindol said that the County Coroner has not yet ruled on the cause of death. She said that Owens is from the Bay Area, but could not be more specific because of the ongoing investigation.
Tindol reckoned that the transient population living on the Bulb ranges from 50 to 100 people.
