HCSO investigating homicide in Orick; 35 year old male victim
At 1 PM, HCSO was looking for a judge to sign a search warrant. I am guessing it was for this homicide case.
Update: Suspect detained.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide in Orick near Highway 101 and Dryden’s Rd.
The Sheriff’s Office Communications Center received the call for service just after 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018 for a 35-year-old male stabbing victim. The suspect reportedly fled the scene southbound.
Officers with California State Parks and the California Highway Patrol assisted in the response. State Parks officers performed life-saving efforts on the victim while medical was en route. The victim later succumbed to his injuries.
A CHP officer located and detained the suspect on Hansen St. in Orick.
This incident is still under investigation.
