Arrested in Tomato
Fifty-two year old Chuck Sollish surrendered to police after a Lane County grand jury indicted him in the murder of a neighbor.
EL CAJON, CA: A McKenzie Bridge man, wanted in the shooting death of
a 70 year old neighbor, turned himself into police last Wednesday. Nathan
Charles "Chuck" Sollish had been indicted for murder following a two month
investigation into the death of Henry Guelld.
According to the Lane County Sheriff's Office, there was
an apparent dispute over damage to plants owned by Sollish, who believed
Guelld was responsible. There were no eyewitness to the crime. Sollish
was determined to be the suspect after many contacts with the public and
people who knew Sollish.
Police intensified their investigation on October 14, stopping
traffic in McKenzie Bridge and handing out close to 200 flyers. They also
were seeking information concerning firearms and ammunition owned by Sollish.
Sollish will have to appear in court in California before he can be returned to Oregon.
