Law Enforcement Investigating Dead Body on Cannabis Farm Along Mendocino County’s Northwestern Edge


Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office deputies have been dispatched to a remote cannabis farm on the westernmost reaches of Briceland Road, a rural route crossing the Mendocino/Humboldt County line, regarding a deceased person found on the property. 

Information is scarce as of now, but MCSO’s Captain Greg Van Patten confirmed deputies are on the way to the property and Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office deputies on the scene are reporting neither the body nor the scene appear suspicious “other than the person is deceased.” He said the property where the deceased person is located lies along Briceland Road.

We will update this story with more information as it becomes available.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
