BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Authorities identified the body of the man found in the Feather River as Jacob Gonzales, who is a suspect in a murder case.

Gonzalez had been charged with murder in March 2018 when the decapitated body of Katherine Cunningham was found on Camano Island, Washington.

Investigators linked Gonzales to the crime through DNA evidence found on a samurai sword.

Detectives said Gonzales drowned. The investigation is ongoing, but detectives said there are no signs of foul play.
