Humboldt State University President Lisa Rossbacher wrote to the Arcata City Council and City Manager Karen Diemer on Wednesday, expressing concern over recent media reports about the David Josiah Lawson homicide investigation.  A copy of the letter was released by HSU this afternoon.

April 18, 2018

Dear Arcata City Council and City Manager:

On behalf of Humboldt State University, I wish to express concern regarding the investigation into the murder of student David Josiah Lawson.

Responding to KHSU's offer of an interview to allow her office to answer criticisms over how the David Josiah Lawson homicide case has been handled, Humboldt County District Attorney Maggie Fleming noted "all of our efforts on the case have been of high-quality and well-justified."

KHSU has obtained a copy of the civil claim filed Friday with the city of Arcata by civil rights attorney Shelley Mack. 

The claim asks for $500,000 damages for Charmaine Lawson in the death of her son, David Josiah Lawson, who was stabbed to death on April 15, 2017. 

Arcata police say the investigation is still active, but the claim filed Friday alleges the APD has failed to actively pursue the investigation.

A researcher was surveying seabirds off the coast of Vancouver Island when he spotted something unexpected: a huge group of common bottlenose dolphins — about 200 of them — breaching and swimming.

This was a bizarre sight because this kind of dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) has never before been spotted in this area. Bottlenoses like the warmer waters farther south.

For more than 70 years historians have wondered what happened to a Nazi U-boat that went missing after going "on the run" following the German surrender to Danish and Dutch forces at the end of World War II. And now there is an answer.

Researchers from the Sea War Museum Jutland, in northern Denmark, say they found the wrecked submarine earlier this month. Apparently, the U-3523, the most advanced sub of its day, has been partially buried in the seabed off the north coast of the country all along.
