On 4/18/18 at approximately 7:41 p.m., the Bellevue Police Department and the Bellevue Fire Department responded to a report of an unconscious female outside of a house on the 600 block of 153rd Avenue Northeast.
When officers and firefighters arrived, they located the non-responsive woman in the backyard. Bellevue fire personnel attempted lifesaving measures for several minutes before she was declared dead.
Bellevue police detectives and the King County Medical Examiner responded to the scene to conduct an investigation into the circumstances of the death.
The victim was later determined to be a 17-year-old girl from Snohomish County.
At this point in the investigation, her death does not appear to be from natural causes, though there were no obvious signs of trauma. The King County Medical Examiner will be doing an autopsy to determine a cause and manner of death.
All involved parties have been interviewed by Bellevue police detectives, and there is no known risk to the neighborhood or the public at large.
No further updates are expected today.
