KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- The Klamath Falls Police Department is looking for a man they believe had something to do with the death of a 69-year-old Klamath Falls woman.
Police are looking for James Marshall Johnson, 39. The photo police provided of Johnson is from 2007.
Police responded to a house fire at 112 Wendling Street on Friday. They were told an elderly woman lived there. Officers found Joan Pittennger, 69, outside near a detached garage. Police say the woman had been severally beaten and had a weak pulse.
Pittennger was taken to Sky Lake Medical Center. She had to be airlifted to a different hospital because her injuries were so severe. Klamath Falls Police say she later died at the hospital.
