The most recent message at the top of Alexa Saulietis' Facebook page is from April 23. It indicates the 26-year-old San Clemente resident commented on a link to lyrics for a song by Caliban.
The title: "Walk Like the Dead."
Late last Monday night, July 1, Saulietis was killed by a freight train in what authorities have said may have been a suicide.
She was struck about 10:45 p.m. south of the Metrolink platform in the area of Senda de la Playa and Avenida Estacion in San Clemente.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department originally said a woman in her 20s had been pronounced dead at the scene there. Witnesses saw her on the tracks before she was struck, according to sheriff's investigators who called the incident a possible suicide.
The county coroner later identified the deceased as Saulietis but did not indicate if her death was caused by suicide or an accident.
Saulietis' Facebook page shows she studied as Saddleback College and came to San Clemente via Norco. Lit's Jeremy Popoff was among her 163 Facebook friends. She liked Blink-182, the movie Twilight and the cable show Dexter.
Before that "Walk Like the Dead" post, the last activity on her Facebook page was on Nov. 25, when she changed her profile picture to the one that opened this item. Saulietis also changed her cover photo to this:
