(Oregon) The man at the center of this investigation says media attention has brought plenty of new leads to the exhumation of the body of Stanley Skridla. Former Oregon Mayor Mike Arians says there were bullet slugs in Skridla’s body. He also says thanks to tips they have now found the .32 caliber gun used to kill him. His investigation has also concluded that Skridla and Reed were killed by two different people.
“There are still one or two individuals that are very much alive that were complicit to some degree of this crime,” says Mike Arians. “The man was shot five times, they put fire on him and tried to burn him with acid or something, to me that’s a statement. Especially, three in the groin that’s a statement. Somebody definitely wanted him dead and saying, “look, don’t mess with us”.
