◼ Murder suspect arrested in Washington
The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office this morning announced that a suspect has been arrested for the 2008 murder of Reepaul Singh Rana whose body was found Sept. 13, 2008, north of Alderpoint.
The 35-year-old San Francisco man was shot to death. His SAAB sedan was found burning on a back road along Big Lagoon on Sept. 10, 2008. Three days later, Rana's body was discovered, dumped in the area of Dyerville Loop Road, north of Alderpoint Road -- more than 100 miles from his vehicle.
The Sheriff's Office reported the body appeared to have been dumped four or five days before it was discovered.
