31 Year Old Man Killed in Marijuana Garden. Sheriff's Dept Seeking Additional Info

Jupiter, CA...From the Tuolumne Sheriff's Dept..."This morning, Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Detectives are investigating a homicide. Last night around 10 o’clock, deputies were called to the Jupiter area on Italian Bar Road near Rose Creek for a report of a man who had been shot. When deputies arrived, they found 31-year-old Scott Andrew Rockey dead in a marijuana garden on his property. Detectives responded to the scene and interviewed witnesses. Child Welfare Services took custody of a 3 year old child living at the home.




We ask anyone with any information regarding this investigation to please contact the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office at 209-533-5815.

I know this was for a photo opp.
But the child's slide next to chemicals and the plants in the background.
The slide has not been touched in a long time. Too much dust. Thank goodness.
I am not a grower, but this is kind of exploiting the situation. Making it look like the child was part of this.

    Being early in this investigation I understand, but....Was cannabis stolen? Was there a theft of the home? Is this a Domestic issue?
    A bit of info could bring comfort or warning to others in the neighborhood.

        No. Commercial marijuana brings crime, including violent crime, the killing of people: murder.

    So what you are saying is the three year old child was never playing around the growing area? This is how these people live and you call it a photo -op? Get real. Children ingest drugs that belong to their parents all the time.

      So its ok if a three year old was there as long as his slide was farther away. Hopefully the child did not witness his father getting killed and that we was not left alone for to long. Legal regulated grows or illegal grows this product is high risk for criminal activity. If grown commercially it needs to be in a controlled secure environment. And by secured I don't mean a fence.

    I believe what the ''photo op'' was saying is a child did live here and was taken into Child Protection Services.
    Just because their is a fine layer of dust does not mean the child never used it or was never in the yard.

    In all fairness, the article states a 3-year old was taken into protective custody. A child, though not responsible for any of this, was very much a part of it and forever without a parent. (An article on mymotherlode offers a bit more.)

            At least ben stopper disclosed his campaign endorsements. Unlike clapp, and clapp took money from guy, the only" guy" that had a weed club in valley springs forgotten knowledge. Not to mention clyde is so unprofessional he got in the face of someone wearing a green collar shirt as he thought he was an employee of marval. Told him he should be ashamed of himself what's funny and disgusting is he doesn't work for marval. So that's what he's doing now standing in front of reds harassing people. Anyone see that police report? On display, clyde clapp an abuser of his own son. Rectal bleeding and all. Pedo, criminal thieve scam artist, domestic violence and drug dealer, oh wait solicitation also. This peice of crap is done. Screw you clapper. No shame. Harassing folk over where they work and can't even get that right. Ban reds, why he hangs out at a known tweaker hair salon is beyond me.

        Clyde Clapp is suing Mar-Val and the Calaveras Sheriff's office for asking him, (Clyde), to leave a private parking lot after he (Clyde), bullied customers. Clapp is running his own "smear campaign" by showing an inability to play well with others. Clyde should be in adult daycare, not having temper tantrums and swinging back and forth like a child in the big board of supervisor's chair.

        Meritta you are the one who has blood on your hands.
        Its time to own up for every pot murder, rape, burglary and assault.
        Granted your new batch of "shake and bake instant mountain folk" dont remember you fighting to bring legal growing to the forefront.
        The hardcore leftist locals who support you dont care how many hard working people have to suffer.

        Those of us who know what a horrible job you did all know who's to blame for what this has become.
        God help us if you get control again.
