Just after 11 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 28, a caller to the Alameda Police Department dispatcher said that there was bag containing dynamite next to a tree on the 700 block of Lincoln Avenue. APD alerted the Alameda County Sheriff Department Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Squad. 

According to her own confession to police, Donna Marie Qualls, 54, fatally shot Emmanuel Emmett Christy, 73, while he slept on Thursday, Dec. 3 (“Local Murder Case Looms,” Dec. 10). She then called the Alameda Police Department (APD) and waited at the scene of the murder she had already confessed to.  

“It’s usually doesn’t happen this way,” said APD Lt. Jill Ottaviano. “It’s unusual for the person to commit the crime and then wait for police to show up. Usually we have to go through a long search for suspects.”
