A sad end for an Aloha girl on the run with a man suspected of sexually abusing her played out on the trails of Forest Park.
A search team found two bodies off a trail near Pittock Mansion on Wednesday. They were confirmed on Friday to be 15-year-old Annieka Vaughan and 23-year-old Zachary Petersen of Pasco, Washington.
Vaughan ran away from home on October 30th. Authorities were concerned that she was with Petersen. He called a crisis line and was said to be suicidal and possibly in possession of a firearm.
Authorities say Petersen shot and killed Vaughn, and then killed himself.
