Bently death under investigation

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of 34-year-old Amber Marie Bently, whose body was discovered 4:30 p.m. Friday in her Gardnerville apartment.

Authorities said it appeared she had been dead for several weeks, but foul play is not suspected.

She is the estranged wife of Minden businessman Christopher Bently.

Sgt. Pat Brooks said Bently’s body was discovered when a civil process server went to the apartment in the 1200 block of High School Street to serve an eviction notice.

Brooks said Bently lived alone in the apartment.

Cause of death is pending.
