to Benjamin Nord's family.
Dark day at DA's office
Humboldt County lowered its flags to half-staff this week to honor the passing of a county investigator.
Benjamin “Ben” A. Nord was 34 when he died of unknown causes Tuesday while on vacation at Trinity Lake. He had worked for the Humboldt County District Attorney's Office since November of last year.

Memorial service to honor local investigator


  1. Cue Billy Joel..."Only the good die young...."

    You know how you get to know people that don't have a mean bone in their body and are truly just nice people?
    That was Ben.
    Good guy.
    Very, very sad.

  2. UPDATE: Large turnout for the service, very nice (for a memorial..)

    The Boss Gallegos failed to appear. Hislop made an announcement about some pressing family matter on the East Coast..yeah, right..

  3. Vacation, somewhere, back east I think.

  4. Family emergency, Hislop said.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
