Two suspects held in death of a Seattle fisherman in central Oregon

Police in Central Oregon say they have two suspects in custody in the beating death of a Seattle fisherman whose body was found in an abandoned railroad tunnel.

Sgt. Jason Erickson of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said the body of the 48-year-old man was found Wednesday just south of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation near a popular fishing spot on the Deschutes River, the Associated Press reported.

Sheriff Jim Adkins says the victim knew at least one of the suspects and alcohol appears to have been involved.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released, the AP reported.
