PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police say two suspects arrested in California for a Washington state slaying are also suspects in the killing of an Oregon teen who somehow crossed paths with them as they were on the run.

State police also said Thursday that 19-year-old Cody Myers died from gunshot wounds to the head and chest.

His body was found in a wooded area in western Oregon on Tuesday.

A day later fugitives David Joseph Pedersen and his girlfriend, Holly Grigsby, were arrested on a highway in northern California after an officer noticed they were driving Myers' car.
