News: Police Uncover Murder Scene At Southern California Ski Resort

By

Normally, grass-roots ski areas like Alta Sierra Ski Resort at Shirley Meadows serve as the settings for idyllic, family oriented, and blue-collar learning experiences in the mountains.

However, that was not the case this past week, when a 50-year old man by the name of Carl Woolwine went missing this past weekend. According to 23 ABC News and kerngoldenempire.com, police have uncovered a murder scene at the ski area that served as the final resting place of Woolwine, who was a resident of Wofford Heights, CA. A shallow grave, which contained his body, was found at the ski resort and police are currently undertaking a homicide investigation. Woolwine was known to work at the ski area on weekends.

In conjunction with the murder of Woolwine, three suspects have been subsequently arrested and booked on charges of first-degree murder. One of the suspects hails from South Lake in Kern County, which lies just over an hour to the northeast of Bakersfield, while the other two suspects live in the greater Bakersfield area.

Earlier in the year, Woolwine’s daughter was involved in a missing persons case after she fled to Texas with a 47-year old friend of the family by the name of Max Kozak. After being found and arrested for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, Kozak was incarcerated and remains at a facility in Tracy, CA.

So far, it’s unclear if the two incidents are related and the investigation is ongoing.

Those arrested are Bobbie Dale Rhynes, 43; Joan Allaine Noble, 35; and Thomas Ray Ertz, 28. Currently a $1 million bail is set for Rhynes, who is charged with a single count of murder while Ertz and Noble are being held without bail on murder and accessory to murder charges.
