Description: This wrongful death matter sought damages for the murder of then 14 year old Curtis Huntzinger by defendant Hash, who buried his body after killing him. The case was finally solved 18 years later, when Hash confessed and led police to the body. He is serving 11 years for manslaughter. Counsel proceeded to a damages trial in Humboldt County Superior Court, and thereafter converted the judgement to a real estate judgement lien. Defendant's property was sold in partial satisfaction of the judgement.
