  • Good job.
    That was fast. Hope it pans out to an arrest.

  • They should investigate the asshole who trolled me on LoCO.
    If he lied about this and just made shit up he should be held to account.
    He posted grey so I’m sure the posts are still there.

    • Greatnortherness

      Was I that asshole you’re referring to? My bad I shouldn’t have used such large words.

    • Wow, silverlining, check your self esteem buddy, who cares what an anonymous troll posts?

    • “If he lied about this and just made shit up” Iit wwould surprise me about this much if it was ALL Bull Shit from him!!! He seems to have issues separarating truth from fiction!!!

    • LOL. Silverlining is upset about a little trolling. Welcome to the web. There may be a Silverlining at the end of the day after all….
      That is some good stuff.

    • Where can we find the article that this guy made comments on???

  • Greatnortherness

    HHow did the shooter get to Chico when they had positive ID days ago?

    • Shooter? Your knowledge is more then fishy…

      • Yeah the shooter. My brother and his girlfriend were brutally shot first before being rolled up into the back end of my brothers truck That Was Then driven on to the public access road and then set on fire…. So maybe you should get some information on the story. Or maybe check out the #RealFacts before talking shit

    • Just one more thing. No one has been charged, this person may only be a witness…

    • My thoughts exactly

  • Why is Chico PD the apparent lead agency if the killings occurred in HumCo?

    • Did they? Could have been killled in Chico then transported here.

    • who knows but, thankfully Chico PD was involved, if they were not, he most likely wouldn’t of been caught. Our local PD definitely needs experts brought in for murders because they seem to have a very difficult time catching any criminals that aren’t cannabis farmers

      • the HCSO cut the forensic crime scene unit years ago and currently sub it out to Redding Co. it seems they have also cut subbing it out or they just don’t care to solve a crime.

      • They cant even catch the farmers.. I think thats why ford and co. Had to step in.. They are adept at shaking farmers down for cash and valuables and they’ll chip the hell outta some immature canibus though..

  • Tired of liberals

    If Chico PD is involved maybe someone will actually go to prison

    • NO the trial will be here, so they will walk with a slap on the proverbial wrist.

      • Yeah the shooter. My brother and his girlfriend were brutally shot first before being rolled up into the back end of my brothers truck That Was Then driven on to the public access road and then set on fire…. So maybe you should get some information on the story. Or maybe check out the #RealFacts before talking shit

  • Could be the suspect is from chico, has a warrant out of butte county, etc.

  • Does life go on?

    I’m just glad someone was apprehended and this isn’t another unsolved murder. Well so far at least
