Late Morning:

Yesterday, just after 4pm, the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office was called regarding a stabbing on Pony Express Trail in Cedar Grove. When deputies arrived, 42 year old Jeremy Fortuin of Pollock Pines, was found with multiple injuries. Live saving efforts were attempted by deputies on scene until medics arrived, who continued with medical aid. Unfortunately, Jeremy did not survive his injuries.

Witness interviews provided information into the altercation. This lead to our request for assistance in locating Johnny Ring. Johnny Ring, and another witness, were found, interviewed, and later released.

Information gathered during the investigation lead to arrest warrants being issued for 19 year old Chase Bomar and 21 year old Cody Bomar, out of Pollock Pines. Chase and Cody were found to have fled to Nevada. With the assistance of Carson City SWAT, EDSO Detectives were able to locate and arrest Chase and Cody. Both have since been arrested on murder charges.

Next of kin notification has been made. At this time, there is no request by EDSO for assistance in the investigation or any other outstanding persons. Booking photographs of Cody and Chase will be released when we have them.
