SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities say a car belonging to a woman whose body was found near a gun- and ammo-filled bunker in Washington state has been found in northern California.

Body found near Washington state bunker was decapitated

The Island County Sheriff Office said Monday the Honda Civic belonging to 26-year-old Katherine Cunningham was abandoned on Interstate 5 in Yreka.

The sheriff’s office says a $1 million warrant has been issued for the arrest of 34-year-old Jacob Gonzales, who has been charged with five counts of unlawful possession of a firearm and one count of motor vehicle theft.

The sheriff’s office says Gonzales remains a person of interest in the case.

Detectives found Cunningham’s body March 3 on an undeveloped parcel of land on Camano Island, north of Seattle.

Nearby, investigators discovered a bunker dug into a hillside containing supplies, guns and ammo.

Authorities believe Gonzales may be headed to Las Vegas.
