Yurok Tribal Council leader resigns post after San Mateo criminal history comes to light


EUREKA -- A man who was charged in the 1980s with killing his 3-month old daughter in San Mateo has resigned from a top Yurok Tribal Council post after his background came to light through social media.

James Dunlap's resignation Tuesday from the post of Tribal chairman came four months after he was elected to the position.

Dunlap, of Humboldt County, was charged with the "sacrifice murder" of his 3-month-old daughter Brittaney at his half-brother's San Mateo home on Sept. 9, 1988.
