Sheriff isn't releasing murder investigation information


 Mariposa County Sheriff Doug Binnewies isn't releasing information regarding the homicide investigation that began on Friday.

That day, a woman's body was found in the Lake Don Pedro subdivision area of Mariposa County. Binnewies said late Friday that the discovery was being treated as a crime scene.

"Our investigators are working around the clock to solve this crime," Binnewies said on Sunday morning.  "Clearly this is a sensitive case.  At the moment we see no benefit to share further details that are not already presently released in the official press release.  Further information will be released when deemed appropriate."

See this week's Mariposa Gazette for updates on the investigation.

Shouldn't they also be

Shouldn't they also be investigating the body that was found on triangle or the missing person on Usona. They say they are investigating but 2 bodies have been found dead and one is still missing and still questions go unanswered. Doesn't seem like they are doing anything but buy more time and cover sh*t up. Very disappointed in Mariposa County Police and very disturbed that nothing is being done.
