Investigation continues in postal worker's death
The Colusa County Sheriff's Office has no new updates on the suspicious death of Concepcion "CB" Johnson — a well-known postal worker at the Colusa Post Office — Sheriff's Lt. Shane Maxey said this week.
"If I had something to tell you, I would," Maxey said. "There is nothing new to update."
Johnson's body was found in an irrigation canal west of Colusa on Lurline Road on Nov. 14, after she had been reported missing just days earlier. She was last seen on Nov. 10 leaving a local bar with a man who reportedly returned to the bar alone later that night.
The death was reported as being suspicious on Nov. 16. More than a month later, Maxey indicated investigators had a person of interest with whom they spoke once before that person requested a lawyer.
Maxey also said then that numerous search warrants had been executed and that investigators had found further evidence at the site where the body was found, without going into detail.
Authorities have provided no further information as to the person of interest, and they have still not released an official cause of death. Maxey said last month the department had received a report from the toxicologist, but investigators were waiting for an additional report from a pathologist before they could move forward. At the time, Maxey said it could take as many as 90 days to receive that report.
