Albany, Calif. — Albany police investigators are seeking the public's help to solve the murder of 37-year-old Randhir Kaur, a University of California San Francisco dental student.
    
Ms. Kaur's body was discovered March 9 by a family member who was notified by UCSF colleagues concerned of her whereabouts, according to the Albany Police Department. Police believe Ms. Kaur was killed on the evening of March 8, after arriving home from attending afternoon prayers at a Sikh temple. Investigators say she planned to spend the evening to study.
    
The UCSF School of Dentistry, in a statement, said Ms. Kaur was enrolled in the dental school's International Dentist Program.

"She was a treasured member of our community, and our hearts go out to her family and friends at this very difficult time," UCSF officials said in a news release. A private candlelight vigil at UCSF was held Monday.
    
Police are requesting anyone who might have seen or heard anything suspicious near Ms. Kaur's home on Kains Avenue in Albany, California or the 5200 block of Panama Avenue in Richmond, California on March 8 and March 9 to contact the Albany Police Investigations Unit at 1-510-525-7300.
