Investigators locate mother of 2 deceased infants found in storage unit


The mother of two dead infants found in a container in a Colfax storage unit recently has been found.

Placer County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Dena Erwin said sheriff's investigators have questioned the 32-year-old woman. She has not been arrested. Investigators are waiting for forensic and toxicology findings before their next move.

The sheriff's department opened the case when a woman who had just purchased the storage unit at auction contacted the department on Nov. 25 when she came upon something suspicious.

"We went to unload the unit, and we started unloading it," Regina Zimmer recounted. "We came to the ottoman, it was taped closed, and said 'fragile' on the top of it. We untaped it, opened it up and the smell that came out was like something I'd never smelled before."

Soft Amish Sugar Cookies

Soft Amish Sugar Cookies

I love baking any time of the year, but there is something about baking around the holidays that is extra special. My 4-year-old has been begging to make Christmas cookies for weeks, so I wanted to find a recipe that would be simple enough for him to really help. I found this recipe on the Cookies and Cups blog and it was the perfect mom/toddler cookie to tackle. I loved the soft, fluffy texture of the cookies and even though there are 2 cups of sugar in it, oddly they weren’t too sweet.

Police: Student brought gun to his Truckee school


A Truckee middle school student was greeted by police when he got off his school bus Tuesday morning because he allegedly was taking a .40 caliber semi-automatic hand gun to school.

Truckee police say they were alerted to the situation by a parent. Officers did not find a firearm on the 14 year old but learned he reportedly showed the gun to at least four other students at Alder Creek Middle School on Monday. It was unclear if the weapon was loaded.

Police said based on their investigation, it was believed the boy did not intend to cause harm with the gun and no threats were made.
