Deputies Find Vehicle Associated With Redway Homicide Attempt Stashed Deep in the Alderpoint Hills; No Arrests Yet
From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:
On Friday, December 16, 2016 at approximately 11:23 a.m. Humboldt County Deputy Sheriffs received information regarding the possible location of the suspect vehicle associated with the attempted homicide in Redway on Tuesday, December 13th.
Deputies were directed to an unmarked dirt road in the Alderpoint area. The dirt road was in poor condition and deputies soon had to continue on foot. The deputies soon located a freshly cut tree that was blocking the road. It appeared the tree was felled in attempt to block further passage on the roadway. A short distance beyond the tree, deputies located the unoccupied suspect vehicle which was partially hidden in a brushy area.
The vehicle was towed and stored as evidence.
This attempted homicide case is still under investigation. No arrests have been made at this point. Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
