Later that same day Tricia Lynn Carver, age 47, of Albany was reported missing to the Linn County Sheriff's Office. That evening, patrol deputies located Ms Carver's vehicle in a restaurant parking lot in northwest Woodburn, approximately 7 miles from where the body was found.

On November 6th, the woman found near St. Paul was positively identified as Tricia Lynn Carver and an autopsy determined that her death was a homicide and the cause was by strangulation.

When the tactical team entered the home of Mr. Carver he was found deceased inside from an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound.
