ACSO (Adams County Sheriff Office) advised Wood and his wife are separating and there have been recently reported Domestic Violence issues in the Home. During a conversation with Adams CSO, Wood advised "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." On 01/20/16 Wood was observed collecting guns from a fifth-wheel trailer on sister-in-laws property. Since that time, Wood's whereabouts are unknown. Adams CSO stated Wood claims to have access to explosives. Wood's in-laws currently reside in Meridian...and have requested extra patrol due to statements from Woods that they are "not safe".Special shout to Hill who has been on this story from the start:
On November 1, 2015, local sheriff dispatcher called [ rancherJack Yantis] out to tend to an injured bull which had been hit by a car. Shortly thereafter he was shot to death by the very sheriff department which called him for help. Jack's nephew Rowdy Paradis, who was a witness, wrote that Jack was"Murdered in cold blood by trigger happy rookies gunned down at the end of his own driveway for trying to take care of his own livestock!!!!!! As their own dispatch had asked him to do I how they get the death penalty."
Jack's daughter Sarah Yantis said "My dad Jack Yantis was brutally gunned down and murdered by the Adams County deputies... My father did not receive any care, including medical care, prior to my arrival. And he was shot and left for dead like common roadkill."
Jack Yantis' widow Donna, 63-years-old, gave this account of the incident from her hospital bed. She had a heart attack upon seeing the police murder her husband.
"On Nov. 1 at approximately 7 p.m. Adams County Sheriff's Department called and told us there was a bull that got hit and they wanted us on the scene and he was mad. So we went down to check it out. I took Jack his gun so he could put the bull out of its misery. When he walked up there and was gonna put him down the officer came up and jerked him back almost off his feet. I don't know what they told him, but they just opened fire and shot him. And then they threatened me and my nephew, Rowdy Paradis, threw us on the middle of Highway 95, searched us and handcuffed us and wouldn't let us go take care of Jack."The two sheriffs who were at the scene at the time of the shooting were Cody Roland and the same Brian Wood, who is deemed unstable and wanted by Idaho police.
