Lalumondiere has deep roots in Washington and recently moved to Henderson to find work as a live-in housekeeper.

Earlier this week on social media, family members suspected foul play.

However, in an online posting today, a relative says police have told them the death is not suspicious.

“Our son Carl [sic] death turns out NOT to be a murder,” Lesa Giffhorn Balsom wrote. “There was no foul play."

The official cause of death is pending the outcome of toxicology tests done by the coroner’s office.
