A 21-year-old woman who had been attending the Reggae Rising music festival last weekend was found dead early Monday morning, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

Lt. Rusty Noe said Molly Donovan, of South Lake Tahoe, was found dead shortly after midnight Monday morning in her camp, which was located near the festival and just across the Mendocino County line.

Noe said the festival's medical team was first called to the scene, but quickly determined that Donovan was deceased, and called the Sheriff's Office.

Noe said Donovan's cause of death hasn't been determined, and likely won't be known for some weeks, pending toxicology test results.

Calls made to Reggae Rising organizers were not immediately returned Wednesday.
