A Notable Victory for Justice in Case of Murdered Pit River Tribal Citizen

MMIP. Amidst the launch of MMIP Awareness week, a notable victory in Northern California sees justice served for Milton "Yogi" McGarva, a Pit River tribal citizen.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta recently announced the sentencing of Jarrett Bleu Rucker to 26 years to life in prison for McGarva's murder, marking a crucial development in the ongoing fight against the Missing Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP) crisis.

The tragic events unfolded on March 9, 2020, when Modoc County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a stabbing report at a residence on County Road 65 in Likely, California. Upon arrival, they discovered McGarva, fatally wounded, alongside Rucker, who sustained injuries requiring urgent medical attention.
