Authorities suspect homicide in Nevada County man's disappearance

From Bill Lindelof:

The Nevada County sheriff says that a man who disappeared last month may be the victim of a homicide.

Isaiah Eli Marsh, 30, was reported to have been missing since April 14. The sheriff's department issued a news release about a week later seeking help finding Marsh, whose black pickup truck was also missing.

On May 15, the pickup was found in Riverside County, and the sheriff's department believes Marsh could be dead. His possible death might be related to involvement in the sale of marijuana, said Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal.

The pickup, which was dusted for fingerprints, was returned to Nevada County.

Marsh, whose residence is in a rural area north of Nevada City, was growing marijuana, Royal said. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's department at (530) 265-1471.

"We want to hear from anyone who knows what he was doing prior to his disappearance," he said. "He was growing and selling locally. We knew that he had a larger quantity and may have had a deal going. Who was that with? That's what we want to know."
