Update:  The Two Rivers Tribune posted a brief story on this incident.

The TRT is indicating this is a suspected homicide following discovery of the victim by a relative.  They say it may– or may not– be connected to the Bayside/Myrtle Avenue fatal hit and run that happened earlier this morning.

 

Update II: Here is what the Sentinel can determine from the CHP logs today:

At 5:45 a.m. this morning a CHP unit was enroute to the Bayside/Myrtle Avenue accident scene, locating three hit-and-run victims at 5:51 a.m.  The driver and the vehicle, a 2005 Kia Spectra, had previously fled the scene.

At 5:58 a.m., the Eureka Police Department contacted, or was contacted, regarding the suspect’s vehicle information.  The vehicle was found on California Street in Eureka by EPD.

At 7:39 a.m., the CHP was requested to go to the Hoopa Tribal Police to ‘ascertain the registered owner’s address and ascertain who was driving the vehicle.’

At approximately around or before 10:30 a.m., the CHP discovered the deceased Hoopa woman in her home; other agencies responded.  The Humboldt County Sheriff’s office and Hoopa Valley Tribal Police took control and custody of the scene.

For the record, both CHP and police “have not confirmed or denied a connection between the suspected homicide in Hoopa and the hit and run in Bayside” this morning.
