Police Continue to Investigate Belmont Woman's Death

Police are seeking the driver of a gray SUV who may have been a possible witness in a case where a woman was found with fatal injuries in Belmont last week.

The woman, identified by the San Mateo County coroner's office as 61-year-old Belmont resident Maria Alicia Castro, was found at about 7 a.m. on Nov. 12 in the southbound lane of Cipriani Boulevard just south of Newlands Avenue, according to police.

Castro was taken to a hospital but succumbed to her injuries, police said. Family members held a memorial for Castro on Tuesday.

A small gray SUV, possibly a newer model Toyota RAV4, was captured on home security cameras in the area and passed where the woman was found about one minute prior to Castro being found in the roadway, police said.

Video of the vehicle has been posted on the Police Department's YouTube page.

Anyone with information about the driver is asked to contact Belmont police at 650-595-7400 or
