Sheriff appreciates public’s assistance

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 — Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon expressed his appreciation for all the information the public has provided regarding the investigation into the death of veterinarian Richard Meinert.

“We’ve gotten a great deal of information and the main thing I want them to know is, please keep it coming. If you know anything call us because we’re following up on everything. It’s too bad in some ways, obviously, that we can’t report back to the people on what we’re doing, but we have to look out for the integrity of the investigation first and foremost,” Growdon said. “Ultimately between that and the forensic analysis and everything else, hopefully we can determine what truly happened there and what the facts are.”
