An investigation by the Klamath County Major Crime Team that started Tuesday, February 12, 2013, into the suspicious death of LARRY WAYNE CLARK, age 65, indicated he died from homicidal violence. Investigators developed a suspect, ZANE STERLING SKEEN, age 34, who is currently in custody in Nevada.
Investigators responded to 2400 Lindley Way in Klamath Falls where CLARK was found deceased. SKEEN had been taken custody in Las Vegas, Nevada, on unrelated charges stemming from a vehicle pursuit with the Arizona Highway Patrol that ended in a crash in Utah.
SKEEN is being held as a Fugitive from Justice in Clark County Jail in Las Vegas, Nevada related to the murder of CLARK. The Klamath County Major Crime Team is continuing the investigation.
Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to contact Klamath County Sheriff's Office Detective Nick Kennedy at (541) 883-5130 ext. 8146.
