Murder Suspect Arrested in Cave Junction
Oregon State Police detectives and troopers arrested Daniel Joseph Martinson this morning in Cave Junction. The 44-year-old Martinson was wanted on a felony warrant for murder.
A citizen called 911 at 9:16 a.m. to report seeing Martinson and officers took him into custody about 10 minutes later without incident in a park.
Troopers, the U.S. Marshals Service and other law enforcement agencies have been searching the area for Martinson in connection with the death of 39-year-old Aaron Lee Clouser last November 5th.
Martinson avoided capture July 16th after being seen near the Page Mountain Sno-Park. Riding a motorcycle, he eluded officers on several remote paved and dirt roads.
