In August 2017, the Eureka Police Department received information regarding possible long term sexual and physical abuse of minors.

An investigation was initiated by the Criminal Investigations Section of the Eureka Police Department, with the assistance of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department and the Humboldt County District Attorney’s office.

As a result of the investigation, probable cause was obtained for the issuance of an arrest warrant for Cory Jordan Fisher Sr. (30 years old of Eureka). The warrant was for the following crimes:

  • Oral Copulation of a minor 10 years old or younger
  • Sodomy with a child 10 years old or younger
  • Lewd acts with a child under 14 years old
