Another Covelo Man Faces Charges Associated with Round Valley Kidnapping and Homicides

Samson Musselini Joaquin,

Samson Musselini Joaquin

Covelo man, Samson Musselini Joaquin, was booked into the Mendocino County Jail on November 20, the day after Round Valley residents Traci Bland and Kevin McCarthy disappeared, and now faces charges of kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm in connection with the couple’s disappearance.

Traci Bland and Kyle McCartney were said to have been attacked by four men on November 19 after arrival at an Oak Lane property in Covelo. Four days later, two bodies were discovered alongside rugged Hulls Valley Road north of Covelo.

These charges mirror those of Covelo man, Joseph Hoaglen, we wrote about earlier today, implying these two men could very well be part of the initial group of four men that were said to attack and assault Kyle and Tracy.

It is important to know that these charges have not been officially filed with the Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office and the information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty

Regarding the charging of Joaquin and Hoaglen in connection with the deaths, Captain Van Patten said, “Detectives believe they had enough probable cause for the additional charges at this point, and the DA will have the ultimate decision on if charges will be filed.” He said that California District Attorney’s are required to submit criminal complaints within 48 hours so “we will know soon.”

According to an April 2020 press release, Joaquin was arrested and charged with domestic violence battery after allegedly attempting to choke and hit his pregnant partner.

Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office asks to hear from “anyone with specific information” about the crimes committed against Bland and McCartney. If you have any information about this case please call the Sheriff’s Office Communications line at 707-463-4086 or the Tip line at 707-234-2100.

District attorney its on you to keep these cowards in jail and hand hefty sentences of life with no parole. These people will do this again if you dont. Make an example out of someone already to show criminals cannot get away with this. The people of covelo are living in fear because of these people. Its not right. Everyone is watching very closely how the sheriff and district attorney handle this case. The criminals will see they can truly get away with anything in covelo if these people aren’t sentenced to life in prison.

Is this some dark humor on your part? Apparently Ms. Bland was beheaded. This is why the female body has not yet been identified.

I don`t know if the head has been found yet.

So, I’m just wondering, how do you know this? Is this speculation on your part, or do you have an in with LEO? They were not found for a few days, and we all know that in the woods things happen to bodies. Also, please remember that her family and friends might be reading this. Can we please show a bit of tact and discretion? Thank you.

A man who beats a pregnant women is certainly a prime suspect for the homicide of another woman. [edit]

There is already a genocide against the Wailaki and Yuki peoples which has been happening since the 1850’s in and around Round Valley – Covelo.

Bidenism?! You must mean “birtherism” when you express your racist views by accusing Obama of not being born-in-America with zero proof whatsoever. You refuse to apologize when disproved because you have zero honor and zero honesty. That would be Trump, Vlad’s Vassal. Putin’s Punk.

You’re welcome. Don’t mention it.

That is one of the most ignorant and Un-American comments I’ve ever read on this website. Everyone deserves a trial and no one should be punished for the actions of their family members if they have no personal involvement.

I see my comment has been deleted for reasons I don`t know and my ideas don`t seem to be popular.

So….Answer me this: How is our present mess working out? Things getting any better….Hmmm…… Do you have a better idea? How about more social workers? More diversity classes? How about higher taxes & more laws & regulations? We`re just a few cents more taxes and a couple of more regulations away from a socialist paradise……. Oh, and let`s bring in more “immigrants”, that will make things a lot better!

It doesn’t matter what your great-great-grandparents went through today is today. Now is now. We are walking in a different world. These games these boys play they act like they’re living a video game that they can just kill people shoot people drag people around burn them rape them whatever. Anything goes. Um… problem is in reality you don’t get another life. You don’t get another chance. Somebody’s not coming back the next time the games turned on. You can’t change your mind and turn it off for a while. It’s all done the deal is sealed.

“Grizz” was in SQ 2010 or 2011. Amazing with the recent crimes he’s committed including armed robbery & felon in possession within last few years he was allowed to walk the streets to now apparently commit a much worse atrocity. I’ve done time but some people are irredeemable

Was the murder of two Caucasians somehow genocide? Or are you referring to the arrest? Or maybe the release of this violent freak to commit more crimes on the rez?

But they’ll sure complain about unsolved murders, as long as it’s one of “their own.” Probably going to be no complaints if this one stays unsolved.

How does the conversation of a possible homicide turn into a political quest for answers? Please show some respect for the deceased and the loved ones left to unravel the truth so they can move on with their lives. Bad decisions have been around since Adam and Eve apparently we have learned little. Hopefully the truth will prevail and put an end to speculation and closure for those left behind.

Half these comments got nothing to do with this crime. I’ve only lived here a while. But from what I’ve read, this happened over a small pot deal. Really, to kill two people over something like that says these people have no respect for life. Nobody deserves this for stealing. Someone said they werent good people, well neither are the ones accused. And just like most minorities, they dont want nothing to do with the police and there relatives are innocent or are being accused unjustly, until it happens to one of them, then it’s the police aren’t doing enough. Why can’t it just be murder is murder, if you are quilty you need to be punished and keep all the bullshit racist shit out of it.
