A Virginia mom who disappeared while out with friends over the weekend was found dead; Sheena West, 36m was last seen at a tapas bar and restaurant in Virginia Beach. She left without her phone ad wallet, and surveillance footage from the restaurant appeared to show her leaving with a man her friends did not know.
On Sunday morning, West’s friends filed a missing person’s report. But on Tuesday they learned the worst, West had been found dead at a residence in Norfolk several miles from the tapas bar early Sunday morning.
Norfolk police got the call about an unresponsive woman in the Ocean View area at about 8:30 am. She was pronounced dead on the scene, and police later determines the woman was West.
Noel Lipieko, a spokeswoman for Norfolk police said that investigators have seen no signs of foul play so far. They are awaiting word from the Medical Examiner’s Office on a cause and manner of death, she said.
The Centre for Animal Healing in Virginia Beach, where West worked, closed on Wednesday as her co-workers struggled “ to try to catch our breath and mourn our friend,” according to a post on their facebook page.
