Deceased Male With Suspected Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound Found in Cemetery

Angels Camp, CA...On May 8, 2018 at approximately 7:40 AM, the Angels Camp Police Department received a report of an unresponsive male with a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound laying in the Altaville Cemetery District's Catholic Cemetery, off of Stockton Road.




Officers arrived and found that the male was deceased. The Calaveras County Coroner's Office took custody of the body. The identity of the male and official cause of death are pending autopsy results.

    Abortion on demand, Assisted suicide, Death Penalty...

    Only thing sad here is he didn't bring his own shovel.

    Would take a thousand of these over one school shooter any day.

    Good riddance.

      So, some poor man is so depressed that he commits suicide at the cemetery, and THIS is what you think is appropriate to post?
      He could have just lost his wife, or a child.
      I know I’m wasting my breath even pointing out how disgusting and lacking in morals and basic compassion you are. People like you don’t care about others.
      What the heck is happening to the people in our community? The comments here say a lot about the people who live here - and it isn’t good.

Oh, how sad and hopeless he must’ve been. I was just waking up and having my coffee and listening to the cacophony of songbirds. The bed was still warm from when my spouse got up and left for work. My dogs and cats were snuggled in their bedding, sound asleep. And there was a hopeless man, all alone in a cemetery. I hope he’s free from what must’ve been his excruciating pain. I don’t believe that God would further punish his wounded children for the only choice that seems to make sense to them. May this man’s family know the love and support of a close knit community without judgement.

I was just starting the yearly clean up of generational family grave sites in the County this weekend. I found syringes, sleeping bags, clothing, broken glass and syringes in Mokelumne Hill. In San Andreas there was a truck in the back with obvious homeless living in it. The trash cans were full of donut boxes, Jackson Casino paper coffee cups, a broken cell phone and household type of stuff. I have a lot more to clean around the county, afraid of what I might find. Hopefully no dead bodies that were not already buried. What is happening in the foothill counties is unacceptable. We need really tough law enforcement here!!

      Actually, drinking is the first choice of the majority of people who end up taking illegal drugs. Drinking is also the drug that keeps giving us deaths from drunk drivers. Happy now?
      What this person has gone through, none of us know, either way it is sad that he didn't know a better way. Remember Robin Williams the comedian? He brought joy and laughter to millions, but not to himself.

        These idiots have yet to realize first marijuana was taken off of gateway drug classifications quite some time ago now. It's alcohol and cigarettes, but I don't believe most around here know how to read so being uneducated is their choice. Now lastly, why are these nasty comments and pot ramblings on this? Someone killed themselves , it has nothing to do with weed or crime. But this just shows how pathetic and hypocritical the folk are around here. Keep proving yourselves community and people will keep leaving with no replacement, kids moving away to never return. Good for you and the hospitality. Hahahahahahahaaha lying crooked calaveras county!

          It's their education, as in the lack of it. Simpletons abound here in the Mother Lode and it's rather obvious. Being so far off topic one can only wonder in amazement of their stupidity and how on earth they could even hold down a job. (probably on assistance and stealing from those who do work) Let's just pray no woman is as dumb as a rock and breeds with someone like him, so utterly stupid and clueless. Just imagine the embarrassment of their kids whenever their friends say "Is that your DAD?"

            You know I love it here, I love my property, the way of life but the true colors of our community is not the way it once was. We used to mind our own buisness , now it's nosy nancys and folk trying to put us into the your either with us or against us. Maybe it's too many transplants, maybe it's old fashioned thought driving them mad, but one thing none of us can change is that change has happened in california and it scares them I guess. I feel we've been looking at very sad and appalling behavior here and it's disturbing. It's too bad they are unable to see the tyranny!

        I haven't even said anything yet on this post. You people are losing it! Additionally, bringing steve r smith's name into this article is totally irrevelant. This is about a man's life-doesn't matter what he was smoking or not smoking or drinking or shooting up-whatever. Maybe the guy was homeless and gave up hope! I have never heard of so many sad things happen compared to before all this cultivation came into the county and not to mention the Prop 64!

    Has everyone forgotten about charles ing, lake, the speed freak killers ect? Ignorance is bliss, how naively spoken. Too much meth brain with in the community in general. And booze. Poof memory gone and now flooded by retards and coffin dodgers with barely any brain cells left. We don't know how lucky we actually are here. Move and then come back after a few years and you'll see you stupid fuks. All you want to do is whine and cry about literally nothing! Turning everything into yourself, what does one man's pain have anything to do with yours? Do you realize how childish it is? How childish it sounds try thinking about that for a second.

    What we need is less people coming here. I’ve lived here years and years and it wasn’t like this 60 years ago, or 50. I look around and “they” come here and now it looks like something Disney made in Murphy’s. I went to school in the old school house on the hill. We had 7 kids in the first grade and about the same in the other grades. 2 rooms,

    Nothing stays the same, they say....well hell, that’s true. You should have lived here then. I know I’ll get some smart ass remark to this my little bit. In my day we wouldn’t have been so rude. Good day children

I lost sympathy when the supervisors brought the felons and dregs of society here. People around everywhere begging and drugged out of their minds.Taking baths in drinking fountains, destroying public restrooms. Roaming the streets looking for someone to prey upon.

Doors kicked in and things stolen, stolen vehicles, insane drugged and drunk driving with vehicles overturned. Motorhomes and vehicles parked all over with people living in them. Community recreation places taken over by thugs. Pets dumped off everywhere.

You bleeding hearts will be complaining soon when it moves in by you.

            Voicing, a voice is nonexistent on a keyboard genius. Policing opinions is what we are commenting about, the censorship in which he deems appropriate. I think you need to look up censorship, wait you know what, the level of education has shown in the response you wrote. I'd be wasting my time trying to explain this.

      I came up here to try to live a better lifestyle than I was before where I used to live before otherwise to this day I wouldn't be here. Sure I moved up here with my retired folks and then eventually got out on my own. That doesn't mean that I have mental issues. Think man, think! (before you comment).

But that's angels camp, welcome to our town where all you dirty dopers are welcome to die, with open armd. Rip, condolences to the family.
