Erik Meiser is scheduled to be back in court for a hearing Friday morning.
A judge granted a temporary defense motion Thursday banning media access to Meiser at the Clackamas County Jail.
The ruling was made a day after Fox 12 revealed a letter sent by Mesier from the Clackamas County Jail. It also comes a day after he was named a person of interest in a Cowlitz County murder investigation.
Meiser is facing charges of aggravated murder, burglary and robbery in connection with the death of Fritz Hayes, 57, at his Lake Oswego home on Sept. 17.
Roger Fickett, the father of a Kelso man found stabbed to death in July, told FOX 12 that Cowlitz County detectives told him they are investigating Meiser in connection with his son's death.
Deputies confirmed Meiser is a person of interest in the case Wednesday night.
The body of Nick Fickett, 28, was found in a tent near a homeless camp along the banks of the Cowlitz River. Deputies said he died of multiple stab wounds.
While watching news coverage of Meiser's arrest in the Lake Oswego murder investigation, Roger Fickett said he had a gut feeling Meiser was involved in his son's death.
"I felt it was him. It was one of those feelings you have," he said.
Roger Fickett said Cowlitz County detectives told him Meiser admitted being involved with Nick Fickett's death, but would not sign a written confession.
"They interrogated him and stuff and he told them he knew," he said. "But then his lawyer told him not to say anything anymore, so he won't say nothing."
Cowlitz County investigators said Meiser has made some statements to law enforcement that relate to the murder of Nick Fickett. They would not specify what statements he made, but said he has not confessed.
Nick Fickett may be who Erik Meiser referred to in a letter he sent to FOX 12 after reporter Andrew Padula reached out to him in jail.
The letter, dated "Tues 23rd 2012," says:
Hey yeah I'd like to give you an interview. There's another murder victim the authorities are either trying to cover up or don't care about. If you'd like to talk I'd be willing to give you this story before the general election, not after. I can prove theirs a cover up going on.
Meiser agreed to an interview with FOX 12, but changed his mind after talking to a lawyer.
Roger Fickett said he has questions for the person who killed his son.
"Why did you do it? [I] don't understand. That's the way his mom feels. She doesn't understand why somebody would do that," he said. "Nick didn't have nothing. All he had was his tent and his clothes."
According to Meiser's attorney, Meiser has also hired a lawyer in Cowlitz County.
