Nov. 19 – Woodland resident Wayne King, 53, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, according to Chief Deputy Coroner Rober Labrash. The death was being investigated as a homicide until Nov. 22 at which point an autopsy revealed the death a suicide.

Nov. 22 – A Napa man was sentenced to 180 days in county jail for failure to pay child support for his child in Yolo County. Roger Lon Cox, 44, had a probation hearing in March, but his sentencing was put off until Nov. 1 so he could make the payments. However, he didn’t pay after May and failed to attend his sentence hearing. On Nov. 4, Cox surrendered.

Nov. 25 – Saul Lomeli-Gutierrez, 29, was found dead in Woodland. Results from an autopsy performed yesterday are pending, though the body showed no signs of foul play.
