The harried family immediately reported to the police the location of her daughter which was shown as the area of Heroes Stadium on Thousand Oaks. This area is 12 miles away from where the teen’s school was.
While the officers were still responding to the scene, the mother’s worst fears came true. She found her daughter at the bottom of a cliff. The area was reportedly carved out by a former rock quarry. Emergency medical workers who reached the spot were unable to save her.
Sri Reddy appears to have fallen off the cliff and died of injuries, according to police. However, investigations are still ongoing about how the teen landed there.
Sri Reddy was a bright member of her school. She was a member of the school’s Science Fair Team. She was also a member of the Upper School Robotics team and the National Honor Society for high achieving students.
