Missing Ore. woman's body found, man arrested

GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) — Police in the east Portland suburb of Gresham, Ore., say they have found the body of a young woman who vanished Tuesday on her way to work and have arrested a neighbor for investigation of aggravated murder.

Police Chief Craig Junginger said late Friday night that searchers found the body of 21-year-old Whitney Heichel (HIKE-el) on a forested mountain east of Gresham.

The chief said police have arrested a 24-year-old male acquaintance who lived in the same apartment complex.
