I have had similar problems.

I believe it is linked to 10.11 not installing Apple's JRE my 'solution' was to revert to OSX 10.10.5

UPDATE: from Bugzilla - Bug 94716

When LibreOffice on OS X 10.10 or 10.11 and LibreOffice loads Oracle's Java 1.8.x via JNI, the JVM terminates LibreOffice. This bug occurs only when only Oracle's JDK or JRE are installed and Apple's Java is not installed.

I installed Apples Java but this did not correct the problem.
