The teenager who was found deceased in Bethel last week is 16-year-old Elena Herman of Bethel. Police haven’t released her name but her family has announced her funeral services. Police say they are still waiting on the autopsy results from Anchorage.
Herman was found the morning of Nov. 15 in a heated shop building at 1910 State Highway.
Police have not been able to identify a cause of death yet and should know more from the autopsy results. They say there were no obvious signs of trauma but since it was an unattended death, they are pursuing it as a possible criminal case.
Herman’s funeral is scheduled for Friday 22nd at 2pm at the Moravian Church. Gathering is at 142 1st Road Housing.
