Detectives Investigate 2013 ‘Suspicious Death’ of Solvang Woman

Authorities are asking for the public to help uncover and bring forward information in the suspicious death last year of a longtime Solvang resident.

Heidi Good died at her home in March 2013, and Santa Barbara County sheriff’s detectives with the North County Criminal Investigations Division are investigating her case as a suspicious death, according to Kelly Hoover, a department spokeswoman.

Little information was released Saturday surrounding the incident, and Hoover said that due to the nature of the case and the fact it is currently under investigation, no further details are available at this time.

A blog reportedly written by Good and her family members is active, and states that she was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2005. She died on March 25, 2013.

Sheriff’s detectives are requesting anyone with information regarding this case to contact the department’s confidential tip line at 805.681.4171.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
