Khadijah Britton Update
December 7, 2018 -- On Thursday afternoon, the Menodcino County sheriff and representatives from the FBI and the Round Valley Tribal Police joined members of Khadijah Britton's family to give an update on the investigation into her disappearance.
Allman assured the public that the investigation is ongoing, though Britton has been missing since early February. Prime suspect Negie Fallis was remanded into custody to serve a four-year sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm, but Allman fears Fallis could serve only a small fraction of that sentence. He and family members hope that, with Fallis behind bars, anyone with as-yet unshared information will come forward now.
The sheriff's department has joined an anonymous crime tip service called WeTip. It can be reached online or at 1 (800) 78-CRIME. The service is so anonymous, if you call and start to identify yourself, the operator will hang up on you and ask that you call back and speak to someone else. The sheriff's own anonymous tip line is (707) 234-2100.
You can hear more information from the sheriff in the story below. We'll also hear from a member of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, talking about the historical and widespread context of unsolved crimes against Native American women.
