Apparently the homeless woman died of natural causes. It must not be easy to be homeless in North County. Age 53 is pretty young to die in this area. After all, Carlsbad and Encinitas triathlons and 10k races frequently have 60 and 70-year old women doing amazingly well.
It’s also something that she died homeless only a few hundred yards away from Carlsbad’s upscale Forum shops, where there are more Lexus and BMWs than anywhere in the next 50 miles.
