JUSTICE FOR JOSIAH: It has been two years since Humboldt State student David Josiah Lawson was killed at a party near campus in 2017. On Monday, a candlelight vigil was held to honor Lawson, and once again urge resolution in his murder, which remains unsolved.

The Arcata vigil was attended by more than 100 people, including Lawson’s family, as well as faculty and students.

In February, a grand jury failed to issue indictments in the case. Since then, one of the grand jurors has come forward expressing frustration with the case. Click here to watch a news report, which includes a transcript of the interview.
