CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon murder suspect who was wearing a wreath of twigs and a bright yellow loincloth when he was arrested this week did not offer any explanation for his attire.
The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports that 44-year-old Daniel Martinson turned himself in Wednesday at a southern Oregon food bank.
Volunteers said Martinson had been to the food bank before – to get food for his friends at a nearby park.
On Wednesday, he sought food for Pumba, a homeless regular at the park who has trouble walking. He also surrendered, and asked the volunteers to phone 9-1-1.
Martinson chatted briefly about his loincloth, telling the volunteers he had tanned it himself. Martinson, however, didn’t say why he was wearing the outfit.
Martinson’s accused of fatally stabbing a man.
