The San Mateo County coroner has identified 16-year-old Walker Thompson Eberwein as the Menlo Park teenager killed by a train on Monday afternoon.
Preliminary information indicates it may have been a suicide, but the investigation is ongoing, Deputy Coroner Roger Fielding said.
The family will hold a memorial service at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church at 950 Santa Cruz Ave.
Train #258 struck the 16-year-old north of the Encinal Avenue crossing in Menlo Park around 4:22 p.m. on Oct. 14, according to Caltrain.
Loaded with commuters during the rush hour, trains resumed running along both tracks around 6:30 p.m., Caltrain spokesperson Jayme Ackemann said.
All trains were held in both directions while transit police responded to the scene.
Caltrain said this was the agency's 13th fatality this year. Last year, 12 people died on the tracks.
