    Sounds like they have a pretty good idea who it is, if they know he's 47.

    They've identified the man and arrested a suspect:

    From April 2011:

    A Spokane transient has been sentenced to 10 ½ years in prison for the slaying of a 46-year-old man last April.

    Roland E. Benton II, 35, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree manslaughter with a deadly weapon for the beating death of Douglas J. Klages.

    Klages' bludgeoned body was found April 30 in a small cave at Camp Caro Community Park at Dishman Hills.
