Teenage girl stabbed to death; police arrest another teen

THIS STORY HAS BEEN UPDATED.

 

CLEARLAKE – A 17-year-old girl was found stabbed to death Thursday afternoon, and police are reporting that the suspect in the case is another teenage girl.


The Clearlake Police Department reported that 18-year-old Gabrielle Rachel Varney of Clearlake was arrested in connection with the stabbing, which was reported at 2:06 p.m.


Police responded to Austin Drive near Mullen Avenue, where the stabbing reportedly took place, according to Lt. Mike Hermann of the Clearlake Police Department.


There, they found the 17-year-old victim, who already had died, Hermann said.


The victim's name is not being released because she is a minor, he added.


Hermann said police located Varney at a nearby residence, where she reportedly admitted to stabbing the victim during an altercation.


Police arrested Varney based on the findings of their investigation, said Hermann.


Her Lake County Jail booking sheet shows that Varney, a student, was arrested at 3:30 p.m. and booked at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. She remains in jail with no set bail amount.


Hermann said the investigation is ongoing.


Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Detective Sgt. Tom Clements, 994-8251.
