Portland police arrested the fiance of a missing Portland woman on charges of second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse Monday.

Police previously said Jeannie Enyeart, 47, was last seen Jan. 27 in the area of Northeast Holladay Street and 93rd Avenue in Portland. Officers found her crashed vehicle two days later in Skamania County, according to a police news release.

Investigators previously said the vehicle was unoccupied. But on Feb. 1, officers found the body of a woman whom they believe to be Enyeart inside the vehicle, the news release states.

A medical examiner determined Monday the woman died from homicidal violence. The medical examiner hasn’t released the woman’s official identity, Portland police said.

Later Monday, detectives arrested Enyeart’s fiance, Jon P. French, 33, formerly of Vancouver, and booked him into the Multnomah County, Ore., Jail.

Officials notified Enyeart’s family, and Portland police said it is not releasing further details at this time.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Detective Brent Christensen at brent.christensen@police.portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-2087 and reference case number 24-22701.
