PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon authorities say they've found an
unidentified body in a vehicle owned by a man missing from
Washington state.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office said Saturday the body was
found inside a black Jeep Patriot owned by David Jones Pedersen.
Authorities have been searching for Pedersen since his wife, Leslie
Pedersen, was found slain in their Everett, Wash., home on Sept.
28.

Authorities have said they believe the Jeep was driven to Oregon
and abandoned by David Jones Pedersen's son, David Joseph Pedersen, and his girlfriend Holly Grigsby.

They have not been charged in relation to the body, but remain
in custody in California on other charges. They are suspects in the
deaths of Leslie Pedersen and 19-year-old Cody Myers.

Authorities hope to identify the body in an autopsy Monday.
