  • More murder s in hoopa imagine that .

  • LeAnna Carson-Hansen

    RIP, and may your family find strength to make it through this. As well as justice served. Pretty horrific to read of this tragic ending for the woman.

  • Man the kid just got out too. What are you doing with your life man. This is terrible, there is actually people who care about you bruh, why are you throwing your life away.

  • Kym censoring again in defense of scumbag criminals. Thieves, gangbangers, cartel and murderers. This is who Kym protects.

  • Wasnt racist. Had 2 do with face tattoos. Judgemental at the worst.

  • What’s up in Hoopa????. It’s getting worse on a daily basis. ….It’s sad ….

  • Sniggering huh? I just thought it might be helpful advise for future stabbing victims.

  • what about the girl iam sure she had people that cared and loved her also.should be cussing the dude for taking a life and telling him he deserve max. punishment by law.not this bro crap,man wake up. multiple stab wound w t f it wasn’t a accident

  • Show me a single example…. Just one example…. Of anyone, ever, who has O.E. script tattoos on their face, that is not a piece of shit. Remember that guy with XIV scribbled on his forehead that stopped any crime ever? Nope… Cuz it never happened. (Training day doesnt count and was the worst movie ever)

  • Sadly This is not suprising… I am a friend of his family and though i have not known him long ,since he was incarcerated until just a little while back, from the beginning of the short time that i have known him it was very apparent that he was a very dangerous individual due to his mental instability and that he suffered from what i can only assume is numerous mental illnesses that combined with multiple drug use became far worse over time and he exhibited behavior several times that was a giant red flag and was bound to end up resulting in a tragic event such as this im so sorry for the loss this poor girls family is going through and that it took something like this happening to finally get this guy off the streets and behind bars where he cant hurt anyone else or himself.

  • I’m sure life behind bars will teach this individual a real lesson. since California can’t seem to get the death penalty figured out

  • It would be nice to know more about this woman and the family she leaves behind. May she rest in peace.

    • She was a good woman. Mother, and friend to many. She had a using problem, but was always kind to her elders and all that she called friend. I was not very close with her but she always had a kind word and smile for me. My husband and I just seen her walking the other day, and we asked if we could give her a ride, she responded “No, I’m almost to my baby girl. This is the price.” Not sure what that meant, but she was almost to her daughter and she was happy to walk in horrible weather to get there. Rumor on the street was she was scared that day. She didn’t want to go home alone. She knew something was going to happen. But not a lot of people believe you, when you have a history of using. To bad someone never listen, just this once. Rest In Peace Cheryl, your smile and kindness will be missed.

      As for the suspected murder, Woo is what he is called… he is a bad seed from a bad tree. He went to CYA for home invasion, I want to say he was about 13 – 15. When he came home he wreaked havoc, even shot himself in the leg! Stabbing was a surprise to hear however. This degenerate likes to pack at least 2 guns, at all times. Between the drugs, alcohol, and not very good figures in his life, he went down a bad bad road. I know this kid personally. Had our own little run in with him and his “friends”. The look in his eye can curdle your blood. Never meet him alone with out a few items of protection yourself.

      • hoopa_w/ – You described the suspect perfectly. He is literally “scum of the Earth” and should rot in prison. Unfortunately, a person had to die from the hands of this beast.

  • I was told that they dropped charges on him. Kym is this true?

    • He was still in jail as of this morning, as of the Humboldt County Jail listings.

      • Yes he is still incarcerated, for other charges, but we were told they are actively looking for another suspect. Just a heads up to my fellow valley members, the murder is still out there.

      • I wanna work/live in humboldt, anybody???…im aware of the dangers it possess but the good far out weighs the least in my eyes✌🏻️❤️🙏
