Released By: Brenda Gainey, PIO

Location: French's Camp

Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to French’s Camp in Cook’s Valley yesterday morning after a woman was found dead in her tent at the reggae festival there. Prior to the Sheriff’s Office’s response, Eureka City Ambulance had been called to the scene and pronounced the forty year-old woman dead. Although the investigation is still ongoing, the woman’s death does not appear to be suspicious. The official cause of death will be determined by the Humboldt County Coroner’s Office. The decedent’s name is being withheld pending the notification of her next of kin.
