  C.L.A. Member, Steve Foth Killed

                                        Police in San Diego are 
                                        investigating the 
                                        stabbing death of 
                                        Steve Foth, member of the band Carnivorous                        
                                        Lunar Activity (C.L.A.), 
                                        a Steve Poltz (who 
                                        worked with Jewel) 
                                        friend and collaborator, 
                                        and small record store 
                                        owner.  

                     APB News reports that the San Francisco - 
                     based Foth, 35, disappeared in San 
                     Diego after visiting Poltz last Wednesday 
                     (Sept. 29). Foth was last seen alive shortly 
                     after borrowing a friend’s 1996 Audi to meet 
                     friends at a restaurant. He never arrived. His 
                     body, stabbed repeatedly in the face, neck, 
                     and chest and stripped of all clothes and 
                     personal possessions, was found Thursday 
                     (Sept. 30) in a field in northern San Diego 
                     County. The Audi turned up in flames early 
                     Sunday (Oct. 3) morning, 20 miles away. 
                     Police are unaware of a motive and have no 
                     suspects.  

                     Poltz, who co-wrote the hit “You Were Meant 
                     For Me,” with former girlfriend Jewel and 
                     appeared in the song’s video, was a member 
                     of the Rugburns before going solo in 1998. 
                     Foth and Poltz, longtime friends, co-wrote the 
                     hit single "Hitchhiker Joe," which appears on 
                     the Rugburns album Morning Wood. Foth was 
                     also close to the San Diego band the Dragons. 

                     Foth’s own band was a semi-serious oddball 
                     folkish trio - two acoustic guitarists and a 
                     drummer - who did occasional gigs and 
                     recordings that mixed humor with music. They 
                     released a seven-inch indie single earlier this 
                     year.
