Nevada City, CA – The Coroner’s Division of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office has ruled the death of Kiely Mai Rodni as accidental. This ruling is based on the pathologist’s finding that her death was the result of drowning and that there was no other information to suggest she was the victim of foul play.

As always, our office will continue to work with the family by evaluating any additional information related to this investigation. We ask that both the media and the public respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.
