EarlierMan Stabbed to Death in Arcata Early This Morning



  • Whatever happened, Rest In Peace, Peter.

  • Too many partiers. Way too many coffins. Don’t drink all night, folks, and you’ll avoid these issues. RIP

  • Hopefully the same local folks who put so much effort into Justice for Josiah, will do the same for this guy. I’m not holding my breath.

    • I’m not sure this guy was the right color for those people to care about his death.

      • My point exactly. If it were a man of color, it would make national news about how racist Humboldt county is. Lets see if they occupy the Arcata board of supervisors office to help bring justice for the death of this young man.

    • There is a history of indifference to blacks being murdered in the US. That may be responsible for causing the black and ‘liberal’ community to come together to keep Josiah’s unsolved murder in the spotlight.
      You can always help find Justice for Peter! I encourage that!!

  • So they have no idea who did it?

    At least it wasn’t random, right, anybody know?

    “The suspect is described as male, possibly Hispanic or Native American, average build, 5 foot 7 inches, wearing a blue t-shirt and gray hoodie,” according to the time standard.

    Condolences to the family.

  • Brandon Watson. He did it

  • “Distribution of controlled substances” in Alabama… could be weed. Correct me if i’m wrong. All these people waving this flag as if it means something about the victim’s character … i keep clicking on the links to Triantos’ arrest or Wanted status, and they all just say “controlled substance”–no mention of anything really destructive or addictive.
    We know, then, a few things about the victim. He liked bars and sometimes stayed ’til closing. He was a friendly, likable guy according to the bar owner. He probably sold weed.
    The first one might get you killed. The second one, only if someone were jealous of your sunny good nature. The third should never indicate a violent death. Heck, if so, i should have died way back when, myself.
    RIP handsome young man!

    • Thanks, it wasn’t the victim’s fault.

      “The suspect, Brandon Watson, has previously been arrested on charges of making criminal threats (in Arcata, in 2014) and assault with a firearm (in Eureka, in 2016).” The suspect should have never been running around free to terrorize people.

  • Drugs are bad!!!

  • Brandon Watson just arrested on walnut drive in eureka.
