Herda found dead

UPDATE 12/14/17: The woman found dead in Windsor on Monday has been identified as Courtney Alexis Herda.

According to a statement released by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, on Dec. 11 at approximately 10:13 am, Windsor Fire Department and Windsor Police deputies responded to the WorldMark Resort, located on Shiloh Road in Windsor for an unresponsive person inside one of the guest rooms.

It was reported to the sheriff’s dispatch center that a 24-year-old woman was unconscious and not breathing. When deputies arrived, they found the San Francisco resident deceased in the hotel room.

According to the statement, the woman was staying in the room with her boyfriend, and at least four other people. The group of young adults live in the San Francisco area and reported they had been staying at the resort this weekend while they attended the Emerald Cup Cannabis event that was held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Unit was contacted and responded to the scene. The woman was transported to the coroner’s office for further examination.

Until further examination it will remain unclear if the woman suffered from a medical issue, the statement says, however, apart from her young age there was nothing else suspicious about her death, nor were there any signs of foul play.

Her name is not being released at this time pending notification of her family.

If you have any information regarding this case, contact the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Coroner’s office at 565-5070.
