The death of a transient who was found in unincorporated Rodeo on Sunday morning is being investigated as a homicide, a Contra Costa County sheriff’s spokesman said today. Deputies responded to a report of a man down near Second Street and Parker Avenue at 10:37 a.m. Sunday and found 73-year-old William Siewert, sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee said this afternoon.
Siewert was semi-conscious but unresponsive as he was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, and he later died at the hospital, according to the sheriff’s office. An autopsy this morning determined that Siewert died of blunt force trauma to the head, sheriff’s officials said. No arrests had been made in the case as of this afternoon.
