Sacramento Bee

A psychotic and desperate Linda Carol Clark repeatedly warned workers at a Placerville hospital that she was going to leave the hospital before she commandeered an ambulance and later was shot to death by police, a federal investigative report indicates.

The report, released to The Bee on Friday under the federal Freedom of Information Act, offers the first detailed timeline about what happened to Clark during a chaotic stay at Marshall Medical Center in March.
