Human Bones Found in Redding Henderson Open Space Homeless Camp Area

 Officer Bob Brannon, R. P. D. - Henderson Homeless Camp Raids

In an area easily accessible to a car or truck at the end of Henderson Road, Redding California Police Sgt. Al Mellon reported Human bones were found 7/25/2012 as police and others were working cleanup of the Henderson Open Space area , south of the Cypress Avenue Bridge.

Preliminary information from the lab indicates the bones had been there for "well over a year," he said.

Redding Homeless Blog must ask in an area heavely raided and enforced by the Redding Police Department and Officers from the California Department of Fish and Game, no offending odors were ever detected ?

Not by law enforcement ? Not by nature hikers ? Not by fisherman ? Not by the homeless ?

Not by members of the Henderson Neighborhood Open Space Group who regularly and ruthlessly patrols the area to turn in homeless camps and destroy their basic survival areas without compassion or pity ?

Looks like the Record Searchlight is a financial donor to the Community Creek Action Group which yearly destroys and unapologetically clears vegetation and life sustaining homeless camps in the Henderson Open Space without offering a compassionate alternative to the multitudes of homeless they displace. How about the Good News Rescue Mission ? No. California Faith Community Nursing ? Rotary Club of Redding ? How about Redding Electric Utilities which is a major contributor to homelessness in our area ? Simpson University students ? Yep all of them. Soon you can add Bethel Church.

In an exclusive preliminary investigation and interviews of homeless, Redding Homeless Blog has discovered some interesting and shocking details.

In fact the area where the human remains were discovered is inhabited by several close knit camps of long time cronic homeless individuals. Nobody in the area ever remembers the smell of a human body rotting there.

More disturbing still it has been reported that one of the long time homeless of the area witnessed the placement of the board over which the skeletal remains were later found. Unaware several used the board for a seat, oblivious to the grisly contents underneath.

As you can imagine they are now in fear for their life. Still more shocking still, they have not been interviewed by any members of the Redding Police Department.

It has also been reported to Redding Homeless Blog by members of the Redding Fire Department that several fires over the years were set in known homeless camps by people other than homeless trying to garner hatred for our local homeless polulation. Was the deposit of these human remains a step up from that playbook in order to cast aspersions on the homeless here as well ?


  1. You don't have to be homeless to come under the blade of the law on camping. I once told our last Police Chies Peter Hansen, that I might just move out of my house into a tent in my front yard; and he told me that if I camp there 7 days, I can be sighted for illegal camping (in my own front yard????) Redding is becomming an It's the government's way or get out of town, type of town. I'm glad I'm at least for now working 28 days a month out of state. Don Kirk

  2. I used to work at Walmart in Anderson and more than one transient came into the store bragging that they were "supposed" to register as sex offenders but knew that the law could not find them in the camps.
