The bodies of Nathan Miles Dix, 31, and Annie Jo Welch, 31, from the Eugene area, were identified from skeletal remains and by evidence at the scene.
The medical examiner stated that both had died from gunshot wounds to the head. Dix's wound was apparently self-inflicted, but the way Welch died is undetermined.
Dix failed to appear on a December 2008 court appearance in Lane County Circuit Court after posting bail from the Lane County Jail a week. An arrest warrant was issued by a Lane County Grand Jury on two counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawful use of a weapon Against a Person.
Oregon State Police detectives had arrested Dix in connection with a September 2008 incident in which he shot at Lane County sheriff deputies. Dix was wounded by deputies returned fire.
