Authorities continue to investigate the death of Sierra Winkler, the college student from Eureka who was found dead on a beach in Southern California just over a week ago.

Officials say on May 4th, a bicyclist discovered 20-year-old Winkler on the beach in Isla Vista.  Authorities later determined she was dead.  Winkler was attending the University of California, Santa Barbara. Officials with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office confirm that an autopsy was performed on Thursday.  They say it will be at least a month before those results are released.
