WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) -- The victim in a beating death in central Oregon has been identified as 48-year-old Dennis Michael Jones of Seattle.

The Jefferson County sheriff's office says two Warm Springs men are jailed in connection with the death, 31-year-old James Ryan Johnson and 23-year-old Steven Neal Anderson.

Jones' body was found May 30 in an abandoned railroad tunnel near a popular Deschutes River fishing spot just south of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.

Sheriff Jim Adkins says the victim knew at least one of the suspects and alcohol appears to have been involved.
