PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The State Police say fingerprint analysis has identified a body washed up on the beach Sunday as that of a fugitive last seen fleeing a traffic stop in September on the Oregon coastal highway.
The police said Wednesday that 20-year-old Kyle L. Wallace of Depoe Bay drove away from a traffic stop south along U.S. 101 of the town. The car was found abandoned a mile away. The police say he was a registered sex offender wanted on parole violation and other charges.
His body was found on the beach about 30 miles north, near Pacific City.
