Whitney Heichel died of gunshot wounds

Whitney Heichel, the 21-year-old whose body was found on Larch Mountain after disappearing last Tuesday, died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Multnomah County medical examiner's office.

Dr. Christopher Young would not release any other findings from the autopsy completed Saturday.

Jonathan Daniel Holt, 24, will be arraigned Monday afternoon in Clackamas County Circuit Court on accusations of aggravated murder.

Holt graduated from Parkrose High School in 2006 with a 3.35 GPA, according to the Parkrose School District.

He was taken into custody Friday evening, roughly the same time Heichel's body was found. But police believe Heichel was murdered in Clackamas County.
