SAN BRUNO — Investigators do not suspect foul play in the death of a woman who disappeared nearly three years ago from her Peninsula condominium complex, and whose body was found near the same grounds in late August, according to San Bruno police.

Lorie Esposito was 61 when she was last seen on Nov. 29, 2019 while living at a tree-covered residential community located on Shelter Creek Lane between Interstate 280 and Highway 35. She was reported missing soon after.

San Bruno police officers were called to the property the morning of Aug. 29 after human remains were discovered near the complex. A resident told this news organization, which first reported that the remains belonged to Esposito, that the body was found in a bushy area by tree workers.

Police confirmed that account in a news release last week, stating that the remains were discovered “by a utility crew, while working in a wooded area adjacent to the property.”

After ruling out foul play, police wrote that “the cause of death has not yet been determined and remains under investigation,” and did not release additional details.

After learning about the news Esposito had been found, one of her four sisters, Judy, told this news organization that the development “allows us some closure.”

She said Esposito was a retired social worker devoted to “helping make the world a little better” and who even in retirement “was always busy, still helping people” by working at soup kitchens and handing out supplies to unhoused people. She added that Esposito volunteered in English-as-a-Second-Language classes and distributed books to children in neighborhoods that lacked library access.
