How did ChuChu Ma a Google engineer employee come to end up floating half naked, face down in a San Francisco Bay? Was reported missing earlier that morning.
Mystery is surrounding the death of a 23 year old Google employee after her unclothed body was found floating in the San Francisco Bay, Thursday, officials said.
The Santa Clara County Coroner’s Office identified the woman as ChuChu Ma of Mountain View, the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety tweeted.
A report via KTVU, revealed the woman being found dead by a person biking along the Sunnyvale trail in California circa 10am. She was reported missing in Mountain View, a few miles away, that same day by her boyfriend, suggesting that Ma may have gone missing the evening before.
A regard of the deceased woman’s LinkedIn profile revealed her to be a software engineer at Google, according to NBC Bay Area.
Ma graduated with a bachelor’s in computer science from the University of Texas, Austin and worked as an engineer for Google for over a year.
Investigators said Ma was half naked. It’s not clear if she was dumped into the bay, or if the body floated from a different location.
Police have also not said whether she was the victim of a crime.
