Missing man found dead

Police say Brandon Dawson slain in alleged drug-related dispute

Last week (April 19), Glenn County detectives announced they’d found the body of an Orland man who had been missing for a little over a month.

Brandon Dawson, 26, disappeared on March 8, according to a Glenn County Sheriff’s Office press release. His mother, Kelli Skidmore, and pregnant girlfriend had reported his disappearance and offered a $10,000 reward for information that could bring him home.

After a multiple-county search, cadaver dogs found Dawson’s body in the Walker Ridge area of Colusa County. Glenn Investigative Task Force detectives allege Dawson was killed over a drug-related dispute. The investigation is ongoing.
