KLAMATH FALLS, OR (KPTV) -

A person of interest sought in connection to a murder investigation in Klamath Falls is now in custody, but a wanted suspect from Beaverton remains on the loose.

Police previously asked for the public's help locating Jaurdyn Mosttler, 19, of Klamath Falls. On Tuesday, investigators said she had been taken into custody for a probation violation.

Matthew Dean Reyes, 26, has not been caught. A nationwide warrant has been issued for his arrest on charges of murder, assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

The investigation began when police conducted a welfare check at a room at the Rivers Inn motel on Main Street in Klamath Falls at 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Officers discovered the body of 57-year-old Rick William Aston. The Klamath County Major Crime Team was called out to investigate the case as a murder.

Anyone who sees Reyes is asked to call 911 and not contact him directly.

Reyes is described as a Native American man, 6'1" and 225 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He is a resident of Beaverton, but has recently been seen in Klamath Falls near Shasta Way, according to police.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Klamath Falls Police Department at 541-883-5336 or leave an anonymous tip on the tip line at 541-883-5334.
