Unattended Death Investigation

Updated: May 2

On 04/30/2024 at approximately 10 am, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office served a scheduled Forcible Entry and Detainer (FED) Eviction issued by the Lincoln County Circuit Court for a residence in Siletz. Deputies knocked on the door of the home multiple times to determine if anyone was home. Neighbors in the area advised Deputies that the sole resident of the property was last seen approximately two days prior and did not have a functioning vehicle. Deputies obtained a phone number for the resident of the home and made attempts to make contact by phone. Deputies were unable to contact the resident by phone and observed no indication that anyone was home.

Upon entry into the home, Deputies located a 57-year-old woman deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Deputies transitioned to an unattended death investigation, as required by Oregon law, and determined no suspicious activity was involved in the death.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office would like to express their condolences for this loss to the woman's family and friends. If you or anyone you know is thinking about suicide, please call the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988, visit their website at www.988lifeline.org, or call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 541-265-0777. We understand every struggle is different and there are resources available.
