We now know there was a link between the two deaths in the Warm Springs Indian Reservation recently.
Three people are facing charges for the killings of Jonas Miller, Faron Kalama, 30, whose dead bodies were found six days apart on the tribal lands.
A Department of Justice document states Curtis Brown, 38, a felon with a history of arrests in Oregon was found to be the link between the two deaths, by helping Tara Lawrence, 20, and Angeledith Smith, 25, avoid arrest in the Kalama murder.
Curtis Brown also admitted to U.S. Magistrate Judge Janice Stewart to killing Jonas Miller on September 23rd.
All suspects are being held in federal custody until a trial set for mid-December.
