An Aloha man is in custody after the body of a 28-year-old woman was found inside a vehicle.
On January 25, 2018, the inter-agency Washington County Major Crimes Team received information regarding a possible homicide where the victim's body had been left inside a vehicle. Detectives searched a neighborhood in Aloha and found the involved vehicle on a residential street near the intersection of Southwest Sarala Street and Southwest Hargis Road.
Detectives obtained a warrant to search the vehicle and late yesterday evening recovered the body of an adult female from inside. She has been identified as 28-year-old Sara Zghoul of Aloha.
During their investigation, detectives identified the suspect and distributed that information to local law enforcement agencies. Shortly after 11:00 p.m. Thursday night, Beaverton Police officers located the suspect near Southwest Murray Boulevard and Southwest Teal Boulevard and took him into custody. His identity will be released at a later date.
The Washington County District Attorney's Office, Washington County Medical Examiner, and forensics technicians from the Sheriff's Office Forensic Science Unit are assisting detectives in the investigation.
