SACRAMENTO BEE : 500 HOMELESS DIED IN LAST 10 YEARS IN SACRAMENTO COUNTY
Many of them took their final breaths alone and anonymously, in narrow alleys, empty fields or cold riverbeds.
During the past 11 years in Sacramento County, at least 501 men, women and children have died homeless, according to the first comprehensive analysis of its kind in the region. That equates to a rate of about one death per week.
About 38 percent of those deaths, all of which were documented by the County Coroner’s Office, occurred outdoors.
Two nonprofit groups, Sacramento Steps Forward and the Sacramento Regional Coalition to End Homelessness, prepared the Homeless Deaths report based on coroner records from June 2002 through June 2013. The records list, among other things, where people died and whether they had a permanent address or were transient. SACRAMENTO STEPS FORWARD
