Man arrested on murder charges related to human remains

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Salem man is facing murder charges after police say they linked him to human remains found in a crawl space of a Salem duplex in June. The Statesman Journal reports 18-year-old Alexander Mosqueda Rivera Burdette was arrested Thursday by Marion County Sheriff’s Office detectives. He is accused of killing 19-year-old Josiah Bagnall. Deputies found Bagnall’s body after a family living there reported a foul odor. An autopsy conducted June 12 determined Bagnall’s cause of death as a homicide and found he had been dead for weeks when his body was found. It wasn’t immediately known if Burdette has a lawyer to speak for him.
