    • So true and the news gets worse as NASA does this for who knows why.

      Poor soul out fishing in a wonderful place and to have that happen is aweful.

      Clyde Lewis did a show where NASA admitted to this and were actively using rockets to disperse the lithium…. And people can’t figure out where the booms and flashes are coming from!

      Pray for the souls lost to the machine.

  • There were a couple of transients here in Fortuna, CA. a few weeks ago and they created some problems here. One set a fire in one of our Veterinarians barns and released some of the horses that were stabled there. These two guys were from Texas as far as I know and they were in a pickup with Texas license plates. Is it possible that these may be the same persons? I can’t remember the color of the pickup, but, I know that the Fortuna PD made contact with them and has the descriptions of both the subjects and the vehicle that they were driving.

    • The men from Denton Texas. Marshall is on the loose. The picture doesn’t do justice. He has long blonde hair and covered in tattoos. Looks like jaxs from sons of anarchy. He has the long stringy hair and tats now!!

  • Condolences to his family and friends. I’m happy to hear they caught two suspects already and hopefully the third one is caught soon and the family can have even a small amount of peace from that.

  • What kind of vehicle were they driving?? The vehicle that the two guys here in Fortuna, CA. was driving was a 90’s model gray Dodge 2 wheel drive truck with Texas plates. The one guy was about 6’2 or so with glasses and is perceived to be schizophrenic. The other guy was around 5’11 and is from Texas. Has glasses and has a beard & carries a large walking stick. Don’t know if this fits the descriptions of the two guys that was arrested on suspicion of homicide.
