Man Arrested For Murder After Two People Are Found Dead At Oasis Road Residence

2021 ended with a double murder for Shasta County. Just before 5AM Friday some residents of 18395 Oasis Road, near the western end of Old Oasis, arrived home after being out of the state and discovered that two of their family members had been killed. The sheriff’s office has not released information on a possible motive, nor how the man and woman died. The only other person on the property was 28-year-old Colton Wayne Rhone, who was inside a travel trailer where he apparently has been living. Deputies say he was not cooperative. Rhone was taken to the major crimes unit to be interviewed, and detectives say he admitted to the murders. He was booked into jail on $2 Million bail. Arraignment is set for Wednesday. Anyone with information is urged to call 245-6135 or email
