Investigation on Suspicious Death Includes Search for DNA and Fingerprints

possible homicide Eureka August 6Today, two Humboldt County Sheriff’s detectives and two evidence technicians will be searching the vehicle driven by a man who was shot under “suspicious” circumstances in the outskirts of Eureka on Saturday evening, according to Lt. Wayne Hanson. While the death could be a suicide, Brials Nelson McCutcheon’s death is being treated as a possible homicide. The deceased man has lived in Petrolia, Arcata, and Eureka.

“We’ll know more after the autopsy on Saturday,” Hanson said. “We’re ruling out all the possibilities…We’ve got two full-time detectives trying to figure it out.” Hanson explained that the evidence technicians would be searching for fingerprints, DNA, papers and other evidence found on both the outside and the inside of the truck.

The community should not expect immediate results after the evidence is gathered. Hanson said. “It takes awhile to process.”

At least it sure seems to read like there are comments by Marci on here. Only a complete tool would try to defend anything about that horrid woman.
