UPDATE: MONDAY 9:46 P.M.

A memorial service for Ms. Ulrich will be held on Tuesday, September 12, at Werner-Rothwell Funeral Home in Westhampton Beach from 3 to 7 p.m.

According to Suffolk County Police Homicide Section Detective Sergeant Charles Leser, the 911 call to East Hampton Town Police last Thursday was made by Michael Goericke, 28, of Flanders, who was a friend of Ms. Ulrich's. Det. Sgt. Leser said that Mr. Goericke made the 911 call saying that Ms. Ulrich had overdosed, but then left the scene.

The Homicide Section planned to meet with Mr. Goericke the day after Ms. Ulrich was found but he never showed up to the meeting, according to Det. Sgt. Leser. Mr. Goericke died on Friday, September 8, at Peconic Bay Medical Center, of what Det. Sgt. Leser said was understood to be an overdose. Mr. Goericke's funeral services were held on Monday at the Brockett Funeral Home in Southampton.

UPDATE: MONDAY 11:40 A.M.

The death of Hallie Ulrich of Sag Harbor is being investigated as a noncriminal matter and the department is awaiting the results of an autopsy and toxicology report, according to Suffolk County Police Homicide Section Detective Lieutenant Kevin Beyrer. Lt. Beyrer said that the section believes Ms. Ulrich was camping “near” Cedar Point County Park with at least one male friend before she was found last Thursday morning. Lt. Beyrer said that an anonymous male made the 911 call as “a possible overdose” to East Hampton Town Police at approximately 6:10 a.m that Thursday.

UPDATE: FRIDAY 4:17 P.M.

Suffolk County Police have identified the woman found dead in East Hampton on Thursday as Hallie Ulrich, 22, who they said was undomiciled. The investigation is ongoing.

ORIGINAL STORY

A woman was found dead on the side of the road in East Hampton on Thursday morning, according to Suffolk County Police.

According to a statement issued Thursday night, the young woman's body was found on the grassy shoulder of Alewife Brook Road north of Terry Road at approximately 6:30 a.m. The victim's death does not appear to be criminal at this time, County Police said.

Detectives were seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the victim, who was described as a white female in her 20s with light brown shoulder-length hair, approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall and approximately 100 pounds, with an owl tattoo on her right wrist and a tattoo of two interlocking rings inside her upper left arm.

Anyone who may have traveled on Alewife-Brook Road near Terry Road Thursday morning, or anyone with information about the victim, has been asked to call the County Homicide Squad at 631-852-6394.

The investigation is continuing, police said.

The one tattoo is suggestive -- police would do well to look to the seasonal community of Irish restaurant workers who come to the East End (mostly Montauk) each Summer.

I don't understand - how does a single tattoo suggest an Irish seasonal resort worker? I know lots of girls from numerous backgrounds that have a single tattoo.
By Funbeer (204), Southampton on Sep 9, 17 4:30 PM
Re-read the initial story and you'll see that your understanding of the information is inaccurate.

And while I have no special knowledge of this case, my initial conclusion was a simple process of ratiocination.

But as I prefaced my comment, that "one tattoo is suggestive," so it's conclusory, not conclusive.

Frank, you added nothing but speculation which is even worse. Using a word like colloquy to describe 27east.com comment chat is laughable. Your entire post and these comments should be deleted.

Very sad. Hopefully we will be able to learn more about her and how this tragedy came to be. Condolences to her friends and family. Rest in peace Hallie.

Who is pretending you ask....The schools. The parents. Sag harbor tried getting drug sniffing dogs in the building a few years back, and all hell broke loose because a handful of prissy parents and administrators with their heads in the sand refused to believe that this shit doesn't exist in our cozy comfy hamlet of Mayberry. "Not my kids" the parents say. It's everywhere out here, and teenagers whether they like it or not are going to run across this garbage and the dregs of the earth making money ...more

Yeah, drug sniffing dogs would have fixed everything. It comes down to parenting, or lack thereof.

I think you meant "refused to believe that this shit exists" (as opposed to "refused to believe" it "doesn't exist"

Sorry harbor master, first of all... its not just is mayberry sag harbor (a place I know you never left)! it is in the entire country
When my kids went to school in the harbor the principal was against having kids breath tested for alcohol at the prom.. he refused because than he would have had to been tested. Makes you go HMMMM..
By J. Totta (86), Sag Harbor on Sep 12, 17 3:01 PM
This comment makes me sad. There are so many reasons people turn to drugs other than poor parenting or lack there of. While I agree there are many instances where this is the case, it is no where near the only reason.

Stand corrected. The point being is, it's a plague, and unfortunately many people do not want to acknowledge that we have problems out here.
By Harbor Master (79), Sag Harbor on Sep 13, 17 8:50 PM
My point exactly. When the school has a former NYC detective on staff, who specialized in the narcotics division, saying that there is a problem, and they can't check lockers because of policy.... who is really benefiting from their so called rights to privacy? The kids who bring this poison into the building. Every East End school faces this problem, and you're right, Mayberry it aint.

Parenting?? I have seen some of the best parents watch their kids struggle with, and sometimes lose their battle, with addiction. As someone with long term recovery, I can assure you it wasn't my parents fault.

So both of them OD within a 24 hour period and it's a "Non Criminal" matter?

They need to find out who the dealer was and arrest him for selling fentanyl laced junk. But our cops are running around with AR-15s at a horse show...

I'd say it was the parents and teachers who were a little off the mark in influencing these young people.

Your an ass. I didn't see him taking drugs in the video. What I did see was someone full of "soul" and life. Someone who was so happy and free spirited that he danced on his skated board! It was so mesmerizing to watch.This young man was clearly full of joy. I gather that he prob never passed judgment on anyone. There is NO room or need for negative/snide comments when peoples lives have been turned upside down.
By toes in the water (514), southampton on Sep 16, 17 8:27 AM
We can't just end these type of stories over and over again with the death of young people and a memorial. I know I have been effected by this situation in my family and I suspect so have many others. We need to take steps when we can as early as we can. We all need to be accountable for each other. Our government needs to take the drugs off the streets. So sad for the family. I hope that can find peace.

The drug situation is an epidemic. Some officials want to put their heads in the sand - want to convince us there is no drugs, no gangs - leaving the most vulnerable exposed. It seems to me there is a point of no return with drug addiction at early ages. Remember the "egg" commercials.
By HB Proud (629), Hampton Bays on Sep 16, 17 11:34 AM
A 28 year-old "so happy and free spirited that he danced on his skate board"? No, that is Peter Pan behavior, what pre-teens do. "Clearly full of joy"? No, of fentanyl. "Mesmerizing to watch"? No, totally, sadly disconcerting and indicative of something widespread in our land--aimless, infantilized, jobless, undereducated, young white males living in altered consciousness about which books are now being written. Incomprehensibly sad for families involved, but a definite societal problem. ...more

Stop buying these kids cellphones. Kids use them to get into trouble, send inappropriate photos of themselves that end up on the internet and to buy drugs. Better to give them more responsibility at home (ongoing chores) to make them grow up and gain a sense of accomplishment.

Last week AG schnierdman put out a warning that they had found oxy pills being sold but they were Fentanyl.
50-100 times more powerful than morphine.
My heart goes out to these parents and their family and friends.
