On Sept. 20, 2011, police were called to a Wainaku residence for a report of a woman found lifeless in the laundry room area of the home.
Upon arrival, police discovered the body of 20-year-old Sommer Ferreira. An initial inquiry was conducted into the cause of her death. Based on the circumstances at the time of the incident, no foul play was suspected.
