Wild Animal Attack

Police responded late last night to reports of a wild animal attack on Marin Street in Almonte, Mill Valley. When officers arrived on the scene they found Derek Alvarez, 16, dead near the tree line. Authorities cannot say if it was the same animal responsible for the body found in the Muir Woods last week. Based on evidence at the scene it is speculated that another person was with him at the scene; and, authorities ask that this person please come forward to help with the investigation.
