A former Mammoth Unified School District student and the son of Mammoth Dog Teamâ€™s Jim Ouimet is a suspect in a double homicide in Sparks, Nev, following the stabbing deaths of a two-year-old boy and the boyâ€™s 62-year-old grandmother on Friday, Sept. 17.
Justin Ouimet, 24, was arrested by the Sparks Police officers in the community of Hidden Valley on Saturday, Sept. 18, on charges of attempted burglary and traffic charges, after an investigation pointed to him as a possible suspect.
Rangers in Yosemite National Park said they found and rescued a lost backpacker earlier this month after spotting a makeshift SOS message on the ground.
Rangers picked him up on Saturday, Sept 11, after Mike Arends had spent three unexpected days and nights in the wilnerness near the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne.
An experienced hiker, Arends' self-preservations techniques were just about perfect, and serve as a kind of a blueprint for hikers who stray into the unknown.
