Haney Memorial

A memorial has been set up for Phillip Haney at the site his body was discovered on February 21.

The Amador County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) investigation into the death of Phillip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower, who was found dead in a park and ride open area adjacent to Highway 16 and Highway 24 in Amador County on Friday, February 21, 2020, is still awaiting the results from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who were called upon to assist in analyzing documents, phone records, a laptop and numerous other items. 

Haney had been living in the RV less than 3 miles from where his body was discovered, a state highway used as a travel route to and from Sacramento. Amador County Sheriff Martin Ryan stated at the beginning of the investigation, that it would be a long and arduous process due to the volume of evidence that was collected and needed to be analyzed.

While no answers, and no updates have been given as to when final findings of the investigation will be released, the ACSO has stated when all materials have been processed, examined and analyzed and the investigation is completed in its entirety, then, and only then, will information be released.
