8C williiiaLdi SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2002 STATESMAN JOURNAL TOOT Fugitive in disguise recaptured SPOKANE, Wash. A 71-year-old woman who escaped from a California prison camp four years ago and disguised herself through plastic surgery was arrested Thursday after authorities received a tip. At the time of her August 1998 escape, Astarte Rice-Davis was serving a 15-year federal sentence for embezzling from her husband's estate. James Rice disappeared from his Virgin Islands home in 1986. The Contra Costa, Calif., developer's body never was found, and he was declared dead in 1988. Rice-Davis, whose surgery reportedly made her appear to be a woman in her 40s, had been featured on several television shows, including "Unsolved Mysteries," "A Current Affair" and "America's Most Wanted." HOMICIDE VICTIM SHOT, THEN SET ON FIRE LONGVIEW, Wash. An autopsy has revealed that a man whose body was discovered near Eco-Park on Spirit Lake Memorial Highway died of a gunshot wound before being set on fire, the Cowlitz County coroner's office reported Saturday. The victim was identified as Michael Kinloch, 33, who was last known to reside in Gladstone. His hands were tied behind his back when his body was found by a passer-by about 2 p.m. Thursday. The victim was burned over about 90 percent of his body. GUNFIRE OUTSIDE CLUB LEAVES TWO MEN DEAD SEATTLE Gunfire erupted outside a downtown club early Saturday, leaving two men dead and two other victims injured, police said. Five men who fled the scene were arrested after the driver of a vehicle crashed into a parked car, Seattle police spokesman Duane Fish said. One man shot multiple times died soon after the shooting. Another man who also suffered multiple gunshot wounds died a few hours after the shooting, a Harborview Medical Center nursing supervisor said. Statesman Journal news services Federal officials find explosives at Idaho house The resident, arrested days earlier, has ties to militia groups. The Associated Press BOISE, Idaho An Idaho man was being held without bail Saturday after federal authorities uncovered at least four pipe bombs and two booby traps in his home after his arrest at a highway rest stop. Larry Eugene Raugust, 48, was arrested Thursday near Lenore, Idaho, about 28 miles east of Lewiston, by members of the Inland Northwest Joint Terrorism Task Force. The task force is composed of agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and detectives from local law-enforcement agencies. The Spokesman-Review reported Saturday that Raugust had a carload of guns when he was taken into custody. Raugust was arrested on a federal charge of delivering and manufacturing an explosive device. He was transported to Boise, where he was ordered held without bail after an appearance Friday before a U.S. magistrate. After his arrest, agents served a search warrant on Raugust's house in Clearwater County, near Weippe, about 50 miles east of Lewiston. Joe McCarthy, chief deputy of the Clearwater County Sheriffs Department, said his officers were asked to keep the public calm, but he told The Lewiston Morning Tribune that "we were in no way involved in what went on there. It was the FBI's case." Raugust has been affiliated with the Northwest Theater Command, part of a national militia organization known as the U.S. Theater Command, authorities said. Raugust has ties to militia groups and common-law courts, which are forums for anti-government activists who attempt to set up their own legal systems in defiance of conventional courts, said Joe Roy, director of Kanwatch at the Southern Poverty Law Center. "He's been involved in the patriot movement since at least 1998," Roy said. Raugust has lived at Almost Heaven, a rural housing community for self-described "patriots" and "constitutionalists," near Kamiah. He also has lived in Spokane and Odessa, Wash. In August 2001, Raugust and other militia activists showed up at the Kamiah home of Michael Cain, who had been served with an eviction notice by sheriffs deputies. Raugust issued a public statement saying he and other armed militia members "are prepared to take this all the way." "There is no more redress of grievances through peaceable means," Raugust was quoted as saying in a newsletter for anti-government activists. "The only ;; way to meet unlawful force is with lawful force," he said. Calls to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Boise were not returned Saturday. 14-year-old held in calf killings The Associated Press MONROE, Wash. Deputies have arrested a 14-year-old boy who is accused of helping beat 16 calves to death at a Monroe dairy farm. Seventeen other Holstein calves were injured Aug. 29 at the Werkhoven Dairy in the Tualco Valley south of Monroe. The boy was arrested Friday at Monroe Junior High School, said Jan Jorgensen, Snohomish County sheriffs spokeswoman. The hnv was held at the Den- ney Juvenile Justice Center in Everett for investigation of seven counts of animal cruelty, seven counts of burglary and one count of first-degree malicious mischief Deputies arrested and released the teen in August but since have received more information, Jorgensen said. The boy claimed he had witnessed Kevin Broers, 19, beat the cows with a baseball bat, according to court documents. Broers, who lived across the road from the Werkhoven farm, has been charged with three counts each of first-degree animal cruelty and third-degree burglary, plus one count of first-degree malicious mischief. He faces nearly five years in prison if convicted. Andy Werkhoven, who owns the dairy with his brother, Jim, bred the calves for dairy production and valued the loss at more than $10,000.
