Suspect Sought In Double Murder North Of Goldendale

A search is underway for a man believed to have been the shooter in the murder of two people on Box Canyon Road north of Goldendale last week, while another man has been arrested in connection with the case.  The Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office says a warrant has been issued charging 31-year-old John Scott Raczykowski of Rufus with two counts of first degree murder in the shooting deaths of 35-year-old Jeremy Allen Wyatt and 34-year-old Elisha Ann King, both from Yakima.  Klickitat County authorities were alerted Thursday night by the FBI in Yakima of a suspect that had been involved in the burning of two bodies on Yakama Nation land in the Toppenish area.  Early Friday morning Goldendale Police, Klickitat County Sheriff’s, and FBI officers located a vehicle associated with one of the suspects in Goldendale, and took two subjects into custody, one of whom was determined to not be involved in the incident.  57-year-old Larry Duane Kleven of Goldendale was booked into the Klickitat County Jail for rendering criminal assistance and tampering with physical evidence.  The Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who may know where Raczykowski is located to call County Emergency Management at 509-773-4545.  He is considered armed and dangerous.
