12Police are investigating what they are calling a suspicious death of a Driftwood Lane resident. The woman’s identity is not yet being released.

Police said the 87-year-old woman, who lived on the 300 block of Driftwood Lane was found dead on her garage floor at 10:49 p.m. Sunday. Police said the woman’s daughter found her after she had come to check on her because she had not been seen in a few days.

Police said there were no signs of forced entry and that it didn’t appear anything was taken from the home where the woman, who they described as a longtime Alameda resident, lived alone.

“We’re still investigating whether there’s any loss at all,” Alameda Police Lt. Bill Scott said.

Scott would not say  whether there were any signs of foul play. He said the garage is detached from the home and that the door was closed when the victim was found.
