Two Warm Springs tribal members are in custody in the beating death of a Seattle fisherman whose body was found in an abandoned railroad tunnel near Mecca Flats this past week. Sheriff’s Sergeant Jason Erickson tells news partner NewsChannel 21 the two suspects were identified on Thursday and were contacted by detectives.  31-year-old James Ryan Johnson and 23-year-old Steven Neal Anderson are now in the Jefferson County Jail without bail on a warrant for murder and first –degree manslaughter. The name of the victim has not yet been released. Sheriff Jim Adkins says the victim knew at least one of the suspects.  An autopsy says the cause of death was blunt force trauma.  Alcohol appears to have been involved.
