ST. HELENS, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a person of interest in the death of a Portland woman is in custody in Oregon after being apprehended in California.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that 28-year-old Jesse Lane was under questioning by deputies Tuesday night about the death of 24-year-old Apache Hightower. He was expected to be jailed afterward in Columbia County.

Lane was wanted for violation of his parole terms when Santa Barbara police officers arrested him Sept. 29.

Hightower’s body was found Sept. 20 down an embankment northeast of St. Helens.

An autopsy report says she died of homicidal violence.
