The death of an aspiring rapper at a memorial barbecue in Turlock may have been sparked by another rapper's song insulting the wife of a gang member, according to the Stanislaus County District Attorney's Office as they laid out their case against two men on trial for murder.
During a recent Stanislaus County Farm Bureau workshop, Governmental Affairs Director Tom Orvis asked a group of about 50 local farmers if they or their property had been a recent victim of crime. Nearly every single farmer raised their hand, and now farmers have begun voicing their frustration with the county's rural crime activity.
Merced County Sheriff's Department investigators are trying to puzzle out the mystery of how an airplane believed to be stored at the Turlock Airport wound up chained to the ground at the Gustine Airport.
The preliminary hearing for a Turlock restaurateur accused of setting fire to his popular eatery, got underway Tuesday, but because of scheduling conflicts, the hearing won't conclude and a ruling won't be issued for more than a month from now.
