◼ Mendocino man killed in pot farm dispute
A Mendocino County man was beaten to death early Friday morning over an apparent dispute with his partners in a marijuana farm outside Hopland, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Department said.
Emergency medical personnel were called to tend to the injured man on a remote ranch off Highway 175 at about 1:24 a.m. and were treating him when he died, sheriff’s Lt. Rusty Noe said.
...“All we know is this guy was in a dispute with his partners over the marijuana and the water situation, and they beat him to death,” Noe said. “We’re just starting our investigation.”
