By  | 

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a 34-year-old man jailed in Nevada after a multi-state car chase is a suspect in the death of a 65-year-old Klamath County man.

The body of Larry Wayne Clark was found Tuesday in his home. An investigation by the Klamath County Major Crime Team indicates his death was a homicide.

Late Friday, state police identified a suspect in the case as Zane Sterling Skeen.

Skeen, reportedly from Klamath Falls, was taken into custody on related allegations stemming from a vehicle pursuit with the Arizona Highway Patrol that ended in a crash in Utah.

State police said in a statement that Skeen is being held as a fugitive in the Clark County Jail in Las Vegas.

The Klamath County investigation continues.
