Posted on 30th September 2016 at 08:56

Authorities in Columbia County now report that the “person of interest” in the Amanda Hightower homicide case is in custody, arrested yesterday in California. Jesse Allen Lane is now being held in the Santa Barbara Jail, after being contacted in that city by law enforcement officers. The 28 year-old is now being held on an Oregon State Parole Board warrant, and awaits an extradition hearing that will be held today. Hightower’s body was found off of Pittsburg Road near Saint Helens on the 20th of this month, a victim of “homicidal violence.” At this time, Lane is wanted for questioning, and is not yet listed as a suspect in the murder.
