A missing Siskiyou County woman has been found dead, and Sheriff Jon Lopey says detectives arrested a man who knew her on suspicion of murder Tuesday evening.

Lopey said investigators found 24-year-old Katrina Leigh Eblen's body Tuesday in a "remote area."

He said Jere Thomas Ramey, 26, of Montague, has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Eblen, of Montague.

Lopey said Eblen and Ramey knew each other.

In a February comment on one of Ramey's Facebook pictures, Eblen wrote, "I love you handsome."

Ramey also shared posts about Eblen's disappearance four times in the past week on his Facebook page.

The cause of death is pending an autopsy, Lopey said. He said she had four children — two sets of twins.

Per Eblen's Facebook page, she was divorced, an assistant manager at KFC and studied psychology at College of the Siskiyous.

She also identified herself as a "Blessed mama."

One friend told the Record Searchlight that Eblen was "truly exceptional," and called her death "a tragedy beyond words."

Eblen's most recent cover photo includes a quote attributed to C.S. Lewis: "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending."

Eblen, 24, was reported missing on Thursday night. She may have been seen early Wednesday morning in Montague, but Lopey said the last official sighting of Eblen was Tuesday at 11 p.m. in Montague.

Anyone with information on Eblen's death or "recent activities" is asked to call the countys' 24-hour dispatch center at 530-841-2900.

Eblen's disappearance came within a few days of that of 59-year-old Alexander Navarro Rivera, found dead Monday afternoon. But Lopey said he doesn't think the disappearances are related, because deputies believe Rivera may have killed himself.

Lopey said a "cryptica note" in Rivera's vehicle referenced medical and other problems.

Lopey said remains were found Monday afternoon not far from Rivera's vehicle, and evidence indicates a bear or mountain lion may have pulled his body from it, though testing on the remains is still pending.

"He was obviously consumed by a carnivorous animal," Lopey said.

Lopey said he didn't know why Rivera was in Siskiyou County. He said people traveling to the area for suicide is, unfortunately, not uncommon.

"For some reason, it's not unusual," he said. "I don't know why."

Lopey said an off-duty law enforcement officer who was hunting with a family member near the area found Rivera's sport utility vehicle about 12:40 p.m. Sunday on a road in the Klamath National Forest.

The SUV was on a U.S. Forest Service road near Cade Mountain, and one of the doors was open.

Documents found inside the SUV identified Rivera.

A California Highway Patrol officer and Siskiyou County sheriff's deputy, who searched the SUV, reported finding a wallet and a mobile phone.
