The Oregonian reports that the body of 16-year-old Kayla Ann Hendrickson of Beaverton was found dumped on the side of Highway 6 about 18 miles east of Tillamook late Friday.

Police discovered the girl’s body after a 911 call reporting “suspicious circumstances along Highway 6.”

KOIN 6 reports that an Oregon State Police investigation “confirmed the woman’s death was from homicidal violence.” On Sunday, the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy and reported the cause of death as multiple gunshot wounds.

There is currently no information on the type of gun used to kill Hendrickson.

Authorities in Humboldt County, California found the murder suspect, 24-year-old Jacob Allen Green of Newport, seriously injured from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a pickup truck matching the description of the vehicle sought in connection with Hendrickson’s murder. Green was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.

Green was the only suspect in Hendrickson’s death.
