All evidence found at the scene indicates this was a suicide. Foul play is not even remotely suspected."


Just heard back from Humboldt County Chief Deputy Coroner/Public Administrator about the body found Saturday on the Hammond trail.

"All evidence found at the scene indicates this was a suicide. Foul play is not even remotely suspected," is what Mr. Stewart emailed me.

This news was first reported on my blog Saturday and the only place it has been reported, so far.

    1. Thanks for the kind words but I would not want the job. TS's problem is their corporate owners; TS actually has decent editors and great reporters like Will, Hunter and Natalie. The problem with most local media is incompetent management, corporate or local, that does not pay and retain decent journalists and the people in this area, on the left and right that do not support independent reporting.

      We also have advertisers, both on the left and the right that rather support non productive journalism and agenda based media so they can continue to keep Humboldt as is, instead of bettering it for the community.

      I am grateful for the business and readers that support me but the reason I can get news that people want to actually know about is because I basically fund myself. I do it for readers like you.
