Killing suspect arrested — Oregon State Police detectives have arrested the suspect in a Josephine County killing who eluded them last week. Lt. Gregg Hastings says a tip from the public led them to 44-year-old Daniel Martinson, who was arrested Wednesday morning at a Cave Junction park. Martinson was wanted on a felony warrant for murder in connection with the November 2013 death of 39-year-old Aaron Lee Clouser of Cave Junction. Police said last week that Martinson gave law enforcement officers the slip on a motorcycle during a manhunt in the forests near the California state line.
