TERREBONNE, Ore. (AP) – The FBI says it has recovered the body of a man who was being sought in the death of his wife at her Warm Springs home.
Mark Kevin Johnson Jr. was discovered Saturday afternoon inside a vehicle that had plunged over a 50-foot cliff in the Deschutes River Canyon near Terrebonne. Because of the difficult terrain, authorities on Sunday used a rope system to bring the remains back to the top of the canyon.
Johnson’s wife, Candelaria Rhoan, was found dead last Thursday. Detectives described the manner as violent.
The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. Both the 33-year-old Johnson and the 30-year-old Rhoan were members of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
