Sheriff expresses appreciation for public’s assistance regarding Meinert case

Tuesday, July 8 — 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 is 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.”

Growdon gave a brief update during today’s Tuesday, July 8 meeting of the Lassen County Board of Supervisors, although he said there wasn’t really any new information he could provide.
