  • Please no negative people, the pain is great enough and speaking badly is only going to reflect on your character as a person as well as spin unnecessary pain for the people who have love.
    Please think and feel, but think twice before you speak, is your opinion really worth causing more hurt in such a devestating time?
    We each have our own perception, but that doesn’t make it ok to be mean in such a time.
    May his soul rest In peace

  • What in the world. A murder in Weott? Another “village of Enchantment”. A place I grew up as a young man. ???

  • The entire community of weott saw this coming.
    When you have a bunch of childish drug users/pushers hanging out accross the street from each other its only a matter of time before something like this happens. As a long time resident of weott i am really saddened by what these drug abusers are doing to our community. Weott is tired of the meth, heroin and COKE! Stop partying in our town. The people of weott are good hard working honest people. its sad in a town of only 400 people we have 10 or so individuals who are trying to turn the place into there private drug party. We tired of all the police calls and drama around weott heights / newton rd. We are tired of the hard drugs in our community. When two well known drug dealers try and kill each other and one dies i think it should be a wakeup call that we shouldnt tollerate these types in our community.

    • Small correction. They lived next door to each other, in the 3 Rental units by the gas station. They used to be nice lil studios but the landlords who own it today, dont seem to care about anything but getting that $ck. You’d think they’d hear their tenants argue all hours of the night, since their house is behind it.

      • There is a difference between someone not caring, and someone who is willing to work with people that others would so quickly turn there back on.
        If you feel so strongly what exactly are you doing to help these people? Just speaking down on them?
        Get a grip
        The landlords where once my saving grace, and you only know bits and pieces, and are feeling a little over entitled, please remember we are all human and I’d you can’t help a person don’t down them….that does nothing but make things worse, and like I said before reflects on who you are as a person

    • Speculating makes an ass out of you I knew the victim personally he was not a drug dealer know your facts!

  • Damn, he was just a baby with so much more life to live. Condolences to his family and friends.

  • Nothing to see here folks, don’t let it get you down because next week we’ll have who grew the most drugs award.Then the next week we’ll have who grew the biggest drug reward and then the week after that we’ll have who took the drugs and concentrated it into the most potent form award and then after that we’ll have the who can take drugs and cook them into the most yummy delectable treat award. Just one thing I can’t figure out, why do we have so many individuals with drug-related problems around here?

      DHHS expanded, you build it, they will come here.

      Ever see data on where these homeless were born and raised???

      Ya, follow gubbamint sources to find out really why Humboldt has a drugged out problem……outsiders created this shit because insiders wanted it the way it is now to grow local progressive liberal/neo con gubbamint larger….multiple headed beast of bullshit and deceit……really evil shit by elected officials who wear clown faces behind closed doors….

      Officials have resorted to very low levels of leadership for “legal paying job opportunities”…..their campaign on jobs, jobs, jobs was a lie propagated to dupe voters who were not already conspiring with the candidate’s campaign bs……any person who voted for any official making promises is an idiot, no 2 ways about it, IDIOTS!

  • Always sad for family loss is a hard thing. If these are such well-known places for drugs and criminal activity weott Heights and this one. Where are our elected officials how about Estelle Fennell coming and checking out our situation.? Still feeling badly for family members that young life is missing

    • Henchman Of Justice

      They are increasing the crime opportunities…….why grow, when ya can rip off the processed weed later……go ahead, get a grow permit (or not), thieves will case you, rip you off.

      Why do all the work when thieving is easiest….

    • Henchman Of Justice

      Family loss, in perspective, the Hatfields and McCoys……only people saddened by any deaths were the infighting two families members….. rest of society could give a shit.

  • Another example for why ALL drugs need to be decriminalized and addicts need to be offered or mandated treatment not incarceration. If drugs are decriminalized the profit & thus the violence is mostly removed from the equation.

  • Seems like it would be the perfect opportunity for a landlord to evict and change faces would be good for community. How about it weott make some time to talk to your neighbors seriously about your problems

  • Does anybody know who the suspected perp identity? you would think the cops would put out a BOLO be on the look out ,for the suspect or suspects . Oh I forgot it’s the dumboldt co sheriff’s office .

  • Why they are probably not putting out a BOLO for the perp:

While en route, Deputies were told one of the male subjects, (Jordan Antonsen), had been stabbed and driven to a local hospital. Deputies arrived at the Newton Rd residence to investigate. Deputies discovered Jordan Antonsen entered the home of a 47 year old male, uninvited. Once in the home, Antonsen instigated a fight with the 47 year old’s roommate. The 47 year old male objected to the activity verbally. Unprovoked, Jordan Antonsen rushed the 47 year old male and a physical fight ensued. The 47 year old male repeatedly told Jordan to stop and to leave the home. He also asked his roommate and another witness to call law enforcement. During the fight, Jordan was able to put the 47 year old male into a headlock. The 47 year old male was able to arm himself with a knife. Fearing for his life, he stabbed Jordan Antonsen in self-defense. Shortly thereafter, Jordan left the residence, and was later taken to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

  • So sad to hear of this.. My love and prayers are with the families involved in this tragedy…
