Body found on Pacific Crest Trail

Feather Publishing
Updated 8/3/2011

The report of a body just off an equestrian section of the Pacific Crest Trail drew personnel from the Forest Service, California Highway Patrol and Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, as well as paramedics from Plumas District Hospital on Thursday, July 28. The victim, Robert Lloyd Stuart, 52, of Belden, rested about 150 feet from Highway 70 on a steep slope. Emergency vehicles were parked in a small pullout about one-half mile west of Belden. Personnel hiked up the hill and eventually brought Stuart down to a waiting ambulance. According to Plumas County Sheriff Sergeant Steve Peay, Stuart likely fell while hiking either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Peay said no foul play was suspected.

“People in Plumas County are afraid of the highway patrol. They’re scared to death of you,” the Quincy businessman said. “They are afraid to go out to dinner. They are afraid to have a glass of wine. There’s un-called-for stops.”

Brown’s criticism summarized the sentiment of many community leaders who gathered in Quincy for a July 15 meeting with CHP Commander Bruce Carpenter and his boss Todd Chadd.

The two-hour session, conducted by State Assemblyman Dan Logue, took the local CHP to task over the way it has been doing business.
