Loring Sendejas identified as woman found dead in Scottsdale Arizona’s bar district

The body of a woman found in an alley near the Scottsdale, Arizona bar district has been identified by police as Loring Sendejas, nicknamed “Lo.”

Police identified Sendejas, 33, on Friday, detailing the discovering of her body in the alley near Saddlebag Trail and Camelback Road on Monday.

Sgt. Ben Hoster, a Scottsdale Police Department spokesman, said officers were originally called to the area about an unconscious person.

Officials say her body did not show any obvious signs of trauma but it is believed she did not die of natural causes. The cause of her death has yet to be determined and the investigation is considered ongoing.

Christina Calhoun, a Chandler resident who set up a GoFundMe account for Sendejas’ funeral expenses, said they were recent roommates and had known each other for six years.

“She was so special and unique,” she said. “Very smart, very independent.”

From the GoFundMe page:

A beautiful soul was taken from us too soon.  Lo was a light to so many lives.  She loved people with all of her heart, she was always there when you needed her, she was pretty, she was kind, she was funny, she was smart, she was particular about the oddest things, she loved Disney movies, she put hot sauce on everything, she laughed too loud, she argued solely for the purpose of proving you wrong, she was feisty, she was silly, she was sweet, she was a bright spirit, she was a wanderlust, she had big plans, she was passionate about so many things, she was so special that there will never be words to adequately describe her.

Plans to honor our cherished friend, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt and godmother are forthcoming.  In the interim, we are raising funds to help cover the cost of the services.  Anything in excess of this will be placed into a fund for her niece.

Lo touched so many lives in her time here with us and we would love to be able to share those memories with everyone.  If you have photos or videos that you would like to share, please reach out so that we can include them.
