CASSEL, Calif. – Convicted killer Jayson Elrod was arrested in Cassel today on drug and other charges. The 38-year-old was convicted in 2000 of the shooting death of a nine year old boy.


Drug agents served a search warrant on a home and property on Sand Pit Road in Cassel around 8 a.m. They say they found 1/2 a pound of methamphetamine buried on the property along with packaging materials and evidence that the drug was being sold.

Elrod was arrested, along with Stephanie Louise Isbell, 23 and Elizabeth Ann Bednar, 42. All three are facing charges of being in possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for sale.

Bednar was also charged with child endangerment. Agents found a 10-year-old was living in a trailer on the property. The child was taken into protective custody by Shasta County Child Family Services because the trailer was “unfit.” elrod-jayson-jpg

Kenneth Scott Elrod, 63, was cited for multiple building code violations and violations involving his dogs. Several dogs were removed from the property by animal regulation.

In 2000, Jayson Elrod was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after investigators say he shot and killed 9 year old Floyd Short. Elrod told investigators at the time he was aiming for a jackrabbit when he shot the boy. Investigators say he was really trying to scare the boy. Elrod was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
