IN A DARK night in November, as he rode along Highway 210 on a moped, Tahkota Chrisiansen, 18, Orrick, is struck and killed by a motorist. There is a suspect, but charges have not been filed.

ORRICK – Linda Alsup seeks justice for her son, as she has done since someone killed him on Highway 210 in November.

“It took me a long time to reach the point of not being bitter,” Alsup said. “That’s not to say I’m not angry, but I’m not letting it consume me anymore.”

Eight months after the death of her son, Tahkota “Kota” Christiansen, 18, Orrick, members of his family and a few friends installed a memorial July 20 at the site near Highway T where he died.
