The Yavapai County sheriff’s office issued an update on its homicide investigation last week (the link was only good for a week so I’ve taken it down). The gist of the sheriff’s statement was that the investigation involves hundreds of interviews and the collection and analysis of extensive forensic and medical evidence, so it will not be completed until some time next month. They will hold a press conference when they turn their report into the District Attorney’s office.
With civil lawsuits beginning to be filed–including one from the Lakota Nation, which demands restitution for Ray’s desecration of Lakota customs as per the terms of the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie (click here for the statement from Lakota spokesman Longblackcat, here for the lawsuit)–Ray has put his Beverly Hills home, which he just purchased last March for $4 million, up for sale. According to the Phoenix New Times news blog, his asking price is $5.4 million.
