Woman Found Dead in Hoopa Home
By TWO RIVERS TRIBUNE STAFF
A suspected homicide, discovered this morning by a relative of the victim, has occurred at a residence near the intersection of Moon Lane and Highway 96 in Hoopa.
Multiple law enforcement agencies—California Highway Patrol, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and Hoopa Valley Tribal Police—have been on the scene since approximately 10:30am this morning.
“CHP is out there [in Hoopa] on follow-up, but this is not relatable to this morning’s incident [hit and run on Myrtle Ave. in Eureka] at this time,” William Adams, a Public Information Officer for CHP, said. “CHP was called out to assist Tribal Police and Humboldt County with their investigation.”
Police have not confirmed or denied a connection between the suspected homicide in Hoopa and the hit and run that occurred at approximately 5:50am this morning claiming the life of a Bayside woman whose identity has not yet been released pending family notification.
CHP reportedly contacted Hoopa Valley Tribal Police this morning in regards to the Myrtle Ave. hit and run incident.
The Two Rivers Tribune was told by Hoopa Tribal Police officers, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies and CHP officers that further information will become available as the investigation continues.
