Diehl was not in a crosswalk when he traversed busy Newark Boulevard just north of Cedar Boulevard, according to Newark Police Capt. Jonathan Arguello. The 36-year-old Pinole driver who struck Diehl is cooperating in the investigation. “There’s no indication of any wrongdoing,” said Arguello. Diehl, 64, was one of Berkeley’s most visible activists, having worked on a range of issues the last 40 years including keeping the punk rock club 924 Gilman Street Project open, protesting the placement of volleyball courts and housing in People’s Park, and advocating for better treatment of the poor, the homeless and those with mental illnesses.

OBIT: Berkeley City Clerk Deanna Despain - Falls in solo accident

Quick Facts 

 Public Official
Alone this death would be tragic but scan the rest of the cases - think again.  Public Officials, Elected Officials and Police Officers.

COD: Accident
This case has always been a concern.  I was already tracking cases e.g. Glover, Nunn and Shimansky plus new ones as they arose.

City clerk Deanna Despain found dead in Oakland

Update 2:35 p.m. The Associated Press is reporting that Deanna Despain’s death was apparently because of a fall down a staircase in her home. She was found by her husband. There were no signs of foul play.
Deanna Despain, Berkeley’s city clerk, was found dead in her home on the 4100 block of Lyman Road in Oakland at 2 a.m. on Saturday morning. The Oakland police are treating the death as suspicious.
The coroner’s office is not yet releasing any information about the death, referring enquiries to the Oakland Police Department.
Despain became acting city clerk in June, 2008, with the retirement of Pamyla Means. She was appointed city clerk in May 2009. She had worked for the city for over 10 years. The birth of her child, on March 22 last year, was applauded at that evening’s City Council meeting.
“Deanna was super smart, she was really on top of things,” said Mark Rhoades, who worked with Despain when he was in the city’s planning department. “She cared a lot about the city.”
In the city offices today, word about Despain’s death spread without any official news. City staff said they were working with Despain’s family on an announcement, pending official word from the OPD.
Berkeleyside is awaiting information from the OPD and will provide updates as details emerge.
