TERREBONNE, OR -- A Warm Springs man wanted in connection with his wife’s death, last week, was found dead at the bottom of the Deschutes River Canyon, near Terrebonne, over the weekend.
FBI agents and Warm Springs Police were looking for Mark Kevin Johnson Jr. as part of the investigation into the violent death of his wife, Candelaria Rhoan. Deschutes County deputies discovered Johnson’s body inside his pickup, more than 100 feet down the slope of a sheer cliff near Lower Bridge Way, Saturday afternoon. They were forced to delay the recovery until Sunday morning, due to the terrain.
Deschutes County Detectives continue to investigate the vehicle incident in cooperation with the ongoing death investigation in Warm Springs.
