The Butte County Sheriff's Office is investigating two suspicious deaths. On 12/20/2014 an Oroville resident called The Butte County Sheriff's Office about 10:30 AM to report expected relatives had not arrived as planned.

While deputies were investigating the circumstances surrounding the report, they discovered a vehicle with two deceased adults on Galen Ridge Road in Berry Creek.

This discovery was made just before 2 PM. Butte County Sheriff's Detectives responded to the area and immediately began an investigation. Due to its sensitive nature, the Sheriff's Office is releasing very few details at this time.

If you are aware of or have knowledge of any suspicious or unusual activity on Galen Ridge Road in Berry Creek within the last 24 hours, you are encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Office; you can remain anonymous when reporting information. The Sheriff will continue to update the public as the investigation continues.
