Trintiy Sheriff Still Closed Mouthed on Kettenpom Murders
Kristin Constantino, Sky Richardson, and Tomas Gouverneur
In spite of every effort by the local Redding paper to gather information from the Trinity Co. Sheriff’s Dept. very little information has been released on the Kettenpom murders which occurred over 2 months ago. When Kristin Constantino and Sky Richardson were murdered last March and their helpful neighbors the Gunds terribly injured, the death of their alleged attacker seemed to signal that the information available would be quickly offered to the public but a possible lawsuit by the Gunds against the Trinity Sheriff Dept. has apparently caused the Department to move cautiously.(an account given by Mr. Gund’s daughter on my blog says that the Trinity Co. Sheriff’s Deputy asked the Gunds to go check on their neighbor–though the Sheriff’s Dept. denies this.) In April, the Department denied a public records request by The Record Searchlight for “911 tapes, dispatch transcripts, investigative documents and autopsy reports…”
Just recently, Ryan Sabalow of the Record Searchlight examined a few more pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that have been reluctantly laid on the table by the Trinity Sheriff’s Dept. The highlights include
- Neither the toxicology reports for the assumed murderer Tomas Gouverneur nor his presumed victims Sky Richardson and Kristin Constantino showed evidence of drugs in their systems.
- Two search warrants were filed but not in Trinity County
