  • Police served three search warrants in Ashland and on the outskirts of Talent Wednesday looking for evidence related to the nearly year-old investigation into the brutal murder of David Grubbs.
    Ashland police Chief Terry Holderness, who is leading the investigation, said police were acting on a tip but declined to say whether they were looking for anything specific or what may have been found during the searches.
    Holderness also declined to comment on whether a suspect had been identified in the case.
    "We obviously have somebody in mind or we wouldn't be serving search warrants," Holderness said.
    "Just because we're searching doesn't mean the person who did this lives at one of these locations," he added. "We've issued several search warrants in this case already."
    About 50 police and search and rescue volunteers from across the region, using dogs and armed with diving gear and metal detectors, combed over wide fields and thick blackberry patches on an 18-acre parcel at 225 W. Rapp Road Wednesday morning. They searched a home, old barns and sheds, junk piles and an irrigation pond on the property.
    Leonard Parrish, who owns the home with his wife, Sally Parrish, wasn't present when searchers arrived at about 10:30 a.m.
    "That's my property and I don't have a clue what's going on," he said early in the search, adding he was on his way to the property.
    Neighbors said the Parrishes were a nice family and cared for grandchildren at the home.
    "What I know of them, they are really nice people," said neighbor Michele Bashaw, 59.
