The death of a Lassen County veterinarian, under investigation as a homicide, has drawn an award for information leading to arrest and prosecution.
Secret Witness of Northern Nevada is offering $2,500 for information about the death of Richard Meinert of Janesville. Meinert, 55, was found dead in his Thompson Peak Veterinary Clinic on June 23. Investigators believe he interrupted a burglary the evening before, and was shot in the chest, said Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon.
The suspect may have left a black flat-brimmed baseball cap with an orange Adidas logo, said Ed Pearce, a Secret Witness spokesman. Sheriff’s officials contacted the program asking for help, he said.
