Arrested on Dec 16 and arrested again on January 4 for Orick homicide
Ronald Joshua Loureiro, 29, was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility yesterday afternoon (Jan. 4, 2018) on charges of homicide and a parole hold.
Loureiro is the suspect of the homicide that occurred on Highway 101 near Drydens Rd. in Orick around 11 a.m. on Jan. 4.
The victim of this homicide has been identified as 34-year-old Vernon James Weatherford. Weatherford’s autopsy is scheduled for Jan. 6, 2018.
I guessed in yesterday's post on the Orick homicide that the search warrant was for this case and I was right.
