Body of Bay Area Marine killed in Virginia returns home

OAKLAND, Calif.

A Delta plane carrying the casket of Lance Corporal Sara Castro Mata landed at Oakland International Airport Friday afternoon. A group of military veterans escorted her body to her home in the Oakley area.

The 19-year-old Marine was one of two soldiers killed by a fellow Marine last week at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Northern Virginia.

The alleged gunman, Sergeant Eusebio Lopez, is from Pacifica.
