From Justice for David Josiah Lawson:

"Tomorrow a vigil will be held for David Josiah Lawson on Arcata's Plaza. July 15th marks three months since his murder and no one is currently in custody. Starting at 6:00 p.m. Please feel free to bring children and flowers #JusticeForJosiah"



"July 15th marks three months since the murder of Humboldt State University Student David Josiah Lawson.

A vigil will be held on Arcata's Plaza tomorrow, Saturday July 15th, 2017 at 6:00 pm.

This is a kid friendly event; the family of Josiah wants this to be a peaceful vigil remembering and honoring Josiah. They would like for the community and those who stand in solidarity to be involved as much as possible.

Thank you all for your continued support as we remember a young life that was ended too soon. #JusticeForJosiah"

  1. I guarantee Elijah Chandler will be there which is absolutely disgusting. He's been lying through his teeth in every interview and testimony that he's given and was clearly involved in covering up what actually happened. I hope they have DNA and fingerprints from him because I would bet every cent I have that that he wiped that knife off and that the partial fingerprint on the knife is his. I'm sure the clothing fibers on the knife are from his shirt as well. The knife had clearly been wiped off and nobody would notice his shirt being blood stained because it was used to put pressure on the decedents wounds, or so he claims. It's absurd to think that a knife would have only a single partial print on it without having been wiped immediately before being thrown to the ground. I would love to hear someone legitimately interview him and question him about the inconsistencies in his story. Law enforcement won't pursue this any further though as doing so would mean arresting members of that club for aggravated battery and pressing them for the truth. Who can blame them though? The only thing that could be more painful for the mother than not knowing what actually happened would be knowing that her son was killed while he and his gang were trying to murder the man they assaulted and that the suspects have been associating with her and lying to everyone.

    1. I don't know if that information will be released unless someone is charged. I have been checking regularly for updates.

  3. I only use anonymous because I am a mother of one of the girls at this party, aso well as all the death threats we have received these last three months. I do agree that Elijah Chandler knows a lot more than he is saying. Yesterday somehow Mrs. Lawson and DJ'so cousin got my daughter's phone number. They called 13 times in 5 hours. Multiple death threats. Mrs. Lawson told the police she is in Florida and didn't call us and yet the cousin stated she talked to the police and she wasnt harrassing us,and she really didnt meen the death threats.If she is in Florda how are they at a vigil today? Hmmm. If you read this PLEASE STOP HARASSING WITNESSES. That is a crime. I spent hours on the phone with the police and DA, yesterday and even changed our number. Stop impeding a murder investigation for your son. We all have told the police everything. Everyone wants to find the murder. There are many other people that have experienced this behavior by them. Please allow the police do there job. And you do yours, ask Elijah more questions?

    1. Did you by any chance record/save those phone calls with the threats? Elijah Chandler won't talk to me because I will ask him questions unlike other media too scared and cover this case with no guts. Getting any information from APD other than we cannot comment on that because it is an ongoing investigation is frustrating. Why is it taking so long to get more results from the DOJ?

    2. Shame on every single person that left the party and the crime scene without talking to the police and because APD won't say who is talking now, shame on them anyone who is still silent. Kyle Zoellner was in custody and the only ones who stayed to talk to the police were the girls who knew Kyle Zoellner. Why is the family not putting the same pressure on the 100 plus people at that party, the people around Josiah impeding life saving efforts?
      Elijah Chandler needs to show what medical certification he has that qualified him to perform CPR on Josiah. Why is the family letting Elijah Chandler around at press conferences and when they are talking to the DA? If everyone else at that party is a potential suspect, so is Elijah Chandler. If the family wants a proper investigation, then they need to stop any efforts that taint it. Elijah Chandler is not family and I don't know of any other case where a non family member, especially one whose whereabouts that night cannot be independently confirmed, is privy to information that the general public is not and we are not for good reason. This is an ongoing investigation.

  4. I do have them recorded, for the police. Until they can find the murder they will not tell anyone anythung. It is very fustrating. But we have to let them do there job. This is not CSI, and it be over in 1 hour. It will take time.

    2. U don't have to post this. I apologize. When I said about doing your job and talk to Elijah I ment Mrs. Lawson, not u. U are awesome. Thanks for posting the truth.

    3. I did post the comment because I knew what you meant but others may not. Thanks for clarifying. Somebody has to post the truth because those of us being harassed and threatened sure are not getting any help from law enforcement or the "media."

  5. John, I'm curious to know if you can answer this question. It's my understanding that the California instructions to jurors on aiding and abetting make it clear that individuals aiding and abetting in a felony can be charged with the murder of one of their accomplices, even if the death was the result of the victim of the felony acting in self defense. (I believe this is in CALJIC 3) Seeing as Kyle Zoellner lost consciousness, which is an aggravating factor for battery, allowing it to be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, could the three individuals that the Zoellners want charged for battery also be charged with murder, even if the stabbed has not been identified? This might give more motivation for them to accept a plea deal for providing more information. Perhaps a question for the DA.

    1. That would be a question for the DA or a criminal defense lawyer.

  6. Anonymous, there is no information that anyone from the family is at the vigil. Also, not having listened to the calls or the police verifying anything in public, I want to make clear that while I believe you received these calls, the identity of who made them has not been proven. Handling it via law enforcement, the way you did is the best way.
