Arcata Man Arrested in Connection With the Laytonville Trimmer Homicide Case
A second suspect has been arrested in the homicide that occurred November 11 near the town of Laytonville. A marijuana farmer named Jeffery Settler was killed on a remote property. Multiple trimmers are sought in connection with the homicide. (See previous article, Trimmers Sought as Suspects in Laytonville Area Homicide, for more on those sought.)
Late last night our sister publication, the Mendocino Voice, scooped everyone with information about the arrest of Gary Fitzgerald. According to the Voice, “Fitzgerald, who was also known as ‘Giggles,’ is a 5’11, 23 year old white male with an Arcata address, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s booking log, although he was previously described as being from Roanoke, Illinois.”
