Until Fortuna PD releases more info, here are some links below from the Bodhi Tree case and Eddie Lee case on Melvin Matthews.
He has been in Humboldt Superior Court so many times, the links below don't even scratch the surface.
He has atleast three Facebook accounts. Here is a photo.
I was just told by someone in Fortuna who saw the photo of Matthews that " he was observed in Fortuna saying someone was trying to kill him. He stole the neighbor's white Toyota truck and the cops were chasing him but I heard them discontinue the pursuit at Tompkins Hill."
There are arrest records for him easily accessible on the internet from 2008, 2013,2014. I have seen him in court since 2014, at least four times
