HUMBOLDT – Humboldt County Sheriff’s detectives arrested one suspect Friday and another Saturday in connection to the homicide of Jerry George.

Detectives sought and obtained $500,000 arrest warrants for Kenneth Loren Johnson, 44, of Eureka, and Jan Marie David-Devore, 47, of Arcata.

Both were wanted for alleged conspiracy, accessory and the destruction of evidence.

Johnson, who has a tattoo of a parrot on his left shoulder, was located inside a mobile home in McKinleyville. George, 29, was last seen at Steele’s Reasor Road home on Jan. 21. HCSO says it has evidence that George was a homicide victim.
