David Earl Sanford, 47, of Fieldbrook

Detectives trying to track down witnesses in homicide case
Detectives investigating the death of a man whose body was found earlier this month on a Mad River bar are following up on leads, but some of the people they want to talk to are seemingly hard to find.

The death of David Earl Sanford, 47, of Fieldbrook, was ruled a homicide Friday after a forensic pathologist examined the body, which was found Dec. 13.

Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Wayne Hanson said the detectives working the case have been talking to some people of interest, but others, because they are believed to be transients, have been hard to track down.

When Sanford's body was found it had visible injuries, but it is still unclear if the injuries contributed to his death.

  1. What are the odds that even if found, Paul will bring the murderer to justice? Pretty slim, huh? Did the obstetrician that delivered Paul drop him on his head at birth or what????

    Thanks oh so much, Doc.

  2. What are the odds? Zero to none.


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