The Arcata City Council was met with a full house this Wednesday as Humboldt State Students, Arcata residents and Charmaine Lawson, mother of David Josiah Lawson who was killed at a party in April, filled the council chambers asking for more answers to a case that has lasted close to five months.  Charmaine Lawson was accompanied by friends and family as she presented a petition with a thousand signatures from students and community members from Humboldt County and Lawson’s hometown in Southern California’s Inland Empire.

It’s been nearly four months and very few  details have been released about the case of David Josiah Lawson, a Humboldt State University student of color who was murdered in April.

Janaee Sykes, who attends HSU said this year is difficult for her and other students of color who just wish their community would support them.

Family and friends of Josiah Lawson announced a reward for information leading to Lawson's killer at a press conference today. 

Charmaine Lawson, Josiah's mother, said "There is a reward of $10,000. If anyone knows anything that would lead to an arrest ... and conviction for my son's murder, I am pleading that you come forward."

"I  think what we've established here tonight is that we have vast hiking riches," says Kevin Hoover. 

On this week’s Thursday Night Talk, it’s all about trails and the people who create, maintain, and document them.
