Positive identification’s made on sixty-seven victims of the Camp Fire, and 19 more are on the way from the Butte County coroner. The Chico Enterprise Record newspaper is profiling every single one of them and now they’re asking for the public’s help to identify seven victims who the newspaper says the family has declined to talk about or, they cannot reach them. The paper goes on to say it’s almost impossible to find any neighbors or community members who knew them, because the neighborhoods are gone.

They are: Joyce N. Acheson, 78, of Paradise; Carol Ann Arrington, 88, of Paradise; Vincent Carota, 65, of Paradise; Jean Forsman, 83, of Magalia; James Kinner, 84, of Paradise; Warren Lessard, 68, of Magalia; and Donna Ware, 86, of Paradise. If you know them, please share your recollections via email at campfirelives. Please include your name and telephone number so a reporter can call.

Anyone with information is asked to email campfirelives. Please include your name and telephone number so a reporter can call.

A man from Lakeport’s been arrested after a tip reveals he was in possession of child pornography. 37 year old Justin Sylva brought in on a felony warrant Tuesday after a months long investigation. Lake Co News reports the Lakeport Police Chief says officers got info about Sylva in July. And they searched his home finding digital evidence and devices they think had kiddie porn on them. He then admitted some of it to deputies and the case was presented to the DA. Then another search warrant and more evidence found and forensic findings turned up more than 100 digital images of child exploitation. He’s charged with possession of matter depicting a person under 18 engaging in or simulating sexual conduct.

A man from San Jose’s been found guilty of killing a great white shark in Santa Cruz County. Court papers say Vinh Pham has been fined $5,000 and will be on conditional probation for two years. Plus he had to destroy the firearm used to kill the shark in June in Aptos. Wildlife officers investigated the case of the shark washing up last June on Beer Can Beach. A necropsy showed it was shot multiple times with a.22 caliber firearm. They got a tip too from someone on a commercial fishing boat crew who might have been responsible and found a vessel fishing after dark where the shark was discovered, arresting the man after violations that included possession of undersize halibut, no landing receipts, failure to weigh commercial catch and failure to turn in landing receipts.
