Crimestoppers: Who killed Christopher Shafer?
YREKA, Calif. -- Yreka police officers need your help finding a murder suspect on the run.

The body of 43-year-old Christopher Scott Shafer was found two years ago in the Yreka Creek.

Police Chief Brian Boles said the case has been hard to solve and at this point, he needs help from the community.

"The body was under water for four to six months, so, a lot of the evidential value is gone," Boles said, adding since Yreka is a small city, the suspect could be anywhere.

The case number is 11-25-2014. If you have any information on a possible suspect in this crime, call Crimestoppers. Depending on the case and information given, Rogue Credit Union will pay you up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and filing of charges. You can remain anonymous.

1. Members of several different groups gathered in Downtown Medford to show their reactions to the decision in Missouri. Members of Oregon Action, Jobs With Justice and Peace House were part of the noon rally. Their main message was for peace and solidarity with Ferguson. The crowd protested peacefully. Medford Police officers also watched from a distance to make sure the road and sidewalk were not blocked.

2. Siskiyou County sheriff's deputies are investigating a death after a body was found under Kelsey Creek Bridge. The area is just outside of Fort Jones. Investigators are performing an autopsy on the body this week. There is still no word of anything suspicious. Please call the sheriff's department if you have any information regarding the case.

3. Yreka police are getting extra eyes throughout the city. The city council passed funding to put cameras up in problem areas across the community. For a few years, the Yreka Police Department has tried several avenues to help high crime areas in the city. Now, new cameras will be placed in some of those places around town. Yreka Police Chief Brian Boles has been working on a solution for three years and recently got the city council members on board to fund a project to put cameras up in places with high crime. The city purchased two surveillance systems and each system has four cameras costing $20,000 in total.

5. A Grants Pass man was able to escape a fire at his home early Tuesday morning. The fire happened along Elk Lane just after 2:30 a.m. Fire investigators say it started at the chimney and moved onto the wall and into the attic. The fire caused $10,000 in damage.

6. The man accused of making false statements to win firefighting contracts has pleaded guilty to charges. In 2008, nine firefighters died in a helicopter crash while fighting a wildfire near Weaverville, Calif. Many of the firefighters were from Southern Oregon and contracted through Grayback Forestry. An investigation later found the helicopter they were riding in could not handle the payload the contractor said it could. Steven Metheny faces multiple charges, including defrauding the U.S. Forest Service. His sentencing is scheduled for March 2015.

7. Medford police officers are investigating a man they say used a key to steal at least $700 from a token machine at Lava Lanes in Medford. Managers say they caught the suspect by checking out surveillance video.

8. The ballot measure that would require genetically engineered foods to be labeled in Oregon is headed for a recount. At last check, "yes" votes on Measure 92 were trailing by about 800 votes. The recount would be the first statewide recount since 2008.

Ore. man sentenced in estranged wife's death
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon man who fatally shot his estranged wife in her suburban Portland apartment in October 2013 and then fled with their young daughter has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Oregonian reports that 37-year-old Joshua Cavett was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm and a felon in possession of body armor. He'll be eligible for release after 28 years.

Killed was 27-year-old Jessie Doyle Cavett. Court records show she had filed for a restraining order and sought a divorce in August 2013. She wrote in her restraining order request that her husband had repeatedly harassed her and threatened her life.

Joshua Cavett's lawyer, Gordon Mallon, said his client shot his wife after he was denied visitation with their then-2-year-old daughter.

Cavett took the toddler and left his wife's then-5-year-old daughter, who called a family friend to report the shooting.
