I understand from the amount of emails I have received there is high interest in what may have happened Monday evening in Grass Valley that led to someone’s death.
To be honest, I don’t know it was Monday, or that there was an accident, or that someone was killed. So, thinks I to myself, I’ll ask.
To that end, I made two requests for information from the investigating agency: the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The troops aren’t allowed to speak to the media (literally), so I emailed Undersheriff Curtis Kull and Sheriff Ed Kilgore and requested information.
Sure, three days have gone by without any response whatsoever, but I’m willing to cut the SO some slack on this one. I’m a professional writer, so it doesn’t take me long to write, “We were called to the scene of an accident Monday evening in which a man was tragically killed. Name withheld pending notification of next of kin.”
