Thirtymile Criminal Complaint, 2006

Conclusion

Based on the facts set forth above, I have probable cause to believe that Ellreese N. Daniels committed involuntary manslaughter in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1112, 1114, because he engaged in firefighting activities in a grossly negligent manner that constituted wanton or reckless disregard for human life, which might produce death, Mr. Daniels' series of grossly negligent actions were the proximate cause of the deaths of Forest Service firefighters Tom Craven, Karen Fitzpatrick, Jessica Johnson and Devin Weaver; and Mr. Daniels either knew that such conduct was a threat to the lives of others or knew of circumstances that would reasonably cause him to foresee that such conduct might be a threat to the lives of others because his actions disregarded established standards and procedures for firefighting that the Forest Service, many other wildland firefighting agencies, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recognize. Based on the facts set forth above, I also have probable cause to believe that Ellreese N. Daniels made material false statements to the Forest Service and to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, agencies within the Executive Branch of the United States Government, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001, concerning whether the fire engines checked in with him when they arrived at the Thirtymile Fire and whether he directed the firefighters who were on the scree slope to come down off the rocks. Finally, based on the facts set forth above, I have probable cause to believe that Ellreese N. Daniels made material false statements to the Forest Service, an agency within the Executive Branch of the United States Government, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001, concerning whether he directed firefighter Rebecca Welch to take two civilians into her fire shelter.
