Press release from the Eureka Police Department (see earlier story here):

On December, 9 2016, at approximately 12:46 pm, officers from the Eureka Police Department responded to the report of a deceased female at a residence on the 300 block of P Street in Eureka.

As the first officer arrived to investigate, he confirmed there was a deceased 18 year old female found by roommates inside the residence. Eureka Police Detectives with assistance from investigators from the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office began an extensive investigation involving some 22 people residing in the residence.

An autopsy is scheduled for later this week and the female’s identity is being withheld pending family notification.

At this time the female’s death is determined to be suspicious. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Amber Cosetti at (707) 441-4300.
