A man found dead in the Feather River last year was identified this week as a suspect in the murder of an Atwater woman, the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office.
He was identified as Jacob Gonzales.
It’s not known how he died, but deputies say he had been dead for a while.
Authorities have been searching for Gonzales since last year after his girlfriend was found decapitated near a bunker filled with weapons on Camano Island north of Seattle.
Katherine Cunningham was from Atwater. She met Gonzales in the Air Force reserves.
