The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what they are calling a suspicious death in the area Caspar and they are looking for a vehicle in relation to it. It is a blue 2009 Chevrolet HHR with a gold medallion on the hood. The side is marked with "American Repair Company" and has a California license plate of 6JWT270. They say they are looking for the vehicle as part of their ongoing death investigation but have so far not given any other details.

Meanwhile a Fort Bragg woman reported missing last night has been found safe. The Sheriff’s Office had been looking for Amitha Tith who hadn’t been seen since last night after leaving home to walk her dog. But officials said this morning both she and her dog were located and they thank everyone that shared the information.

At least 2500 people with pot-related felony convictions in California have filed requests to have their convictions or sentences reduced since Proposition 64 passed in November. The Associated Press sites the partial state figure reported through March of people with felonies taking advantage of one portion of Prop 64 to try and get them reduced to misdemeanors. Some they interviewed said having a felony lumps them in with violent offenders with trouble getting a job or a loan. The AP says the degree of success in reduction seems to vary from County to County. Mendocino County DA David Eyster says he fights any case not eligible for a reduction, such as those with a major felony in their past, a sex offense, two previous convictions for the same crime and committing an environmental crime while cultivating pot.

Another giant landslide has blocked Highway 1 near Big Sur. Cal Trans says about one-third of a mile of road near the Mud Creek area is buried under a 40-foot layer of rock and dirt. The state had already closed part of Highway 1 nearby to repair some buckled pavement and remove debris from an earlier slide. Cal Trans says they now have to wait for the immediate slide danger to stop before they can figure out how to shore it up and then get it cleared.
