    Tehema County Sheriff’s Office found Mendenhall’s body with apparent stab wounds near a culvert in a decomposed and mummified condition in October 1990 in Corning, south of Red Bluff. However, Mendenhall’s sister called Eureka police in 1998 to file a missing person’s report, according to Powell, and told police that Mendenhall had last called her from Eureka in 1993 — three years after Mendenhall’s body was found.
