Investigators have identified the cause of Aly Yeoman’s death as drowning. However, they have not yet declared the manner of her death. With no evidence of foul play, suicide nor accident have been ruled out. They further confirmed they found a blood alcohol content of about 0.07% in her system. Nothing else was listed in the toxicology or lab reports.
Aly was a beautiful, young Yuba College student who was last seen leaving Mike Lizarraga’s Romero Street home on the evening of March 30, 2017. Later that same night her truck was spotted driving around a locked gate and entering a levee road along the Feather River in Live Oak, California. The next morning, March 31, farmers spotted her truck stuck in the mud at a nearby orchard off Pennington Rd., with a single set of footprints leading away from it. After she was reported missing on April 1, her cell phone pinged on April 2 at 4:33 AM near the Romero St. residence. On April 3 the farmers finally called in the abandoned truck since no one had come to claim it. Detectives searched the entire area and reported the discovery of her truck to the media. Then around dusk that night, Aly’s phone mysteriously appeared near the levee where her truck had been abandoned four days earlier. After many weeks of searching and investigating, on May 6 a fisherman randomly found Aly deceased in the river near where investigators had already searched.
Investigators are still waiting on forensic results from Aly’s Toyota Tacoma. And questions remain unanswered on how her cell phone could have pinged in the Romero St. area after her truck was seen stuck in the mud, yet found near her truck four days later. Unless there is any new information gleaned from the truck forensics lab results, or until someone with more information comes forward, the investigation into Aly’s last hours and death will be at a standstill.
