Christine Chavez Wiki – Christine Chavez Biography
Christine Chavez, A homeless mother sleeping in a California park was killed last week after she was run over by a lawnmower, with investigators leaving “pieces” of her body scattered across the grass, her family says. Christine Chavez, 27, was lying in the tall grass at Beard Brook Park in Modesto around noon on July 8 when an employee riding a John Deere tractor with a lawn mower swept the area. The unidentified worker said he didn’t see the sleeping woman until he “noticed a body in the grass that she had already passed,” Modesto police said. The employee called 911, but Chavez was pronounced dead at the scene. Family members said his grief has been compounded by what they called a botched and disrespectful cleaning. “They left big chunks of it all over the place, just covered with the grass,” the victim’s sister, Rosalinda, told Fox 40. “We have to go see the place because we wanted some kind of closure, and to be there, looking at the ground, and then all of a sudden to see parts of it, it’s horrible.” “Even when they go and pick up a dog from the street, they take more time.” Chavez’s father, Christopher, said he was able to pocket pieces of his daughter’s bones, skull and teeth in the days after his death.
Christine Chavez was 27 years old.

The woman’s family believes the careless handling of her remains could be because she was one of thousands of homeless residents of the city. Chavez, who has a 9-year-old daughter, had been on the go for the past three or four years and often slept in the park, which was officially acquired by nearby Bodega E&J Gallo the day before the tragic death, according to the Modesto Bee. . The 12-acre park is frequented by the homeless and was once a licensed campsite for the area’s homeless before the change of ownership. Other homeless people said they saw Chavez wash his hair in the park creek before going to sleep on a hill near the playground and baseball field. Twenty minutes later, the mower arrived. Chavez’s family is now calling for justice for the death of her loved one and stronger city ordinances that protect the homeless. “She didn’t deserve that for that reason, because she was homeless,” said her older brother, Randy Chavez, 33, of Arizona. “My sister was loved. All she wanted was to be free.” “We want the ordinances to be changed so that it doesn’t happen again. Regardless of whether they are homeless, they are still people and should be treated the same as anyone else.”
