Spokane Police Major Crimes detectives, the Patrol Anti-Crime Team (PACT), and members of the K-9 Unit have located the person of interest in a recent death investigation and taken him into custody. Cameron Keith (28) was taken into custody and is currently being held in the Spokane County Jail on an outstanding warrant. Investigation into the death of Christen (Crissy) Nichole DeMars, who died from a gunshot wound to the abdomen, is ongoing.

In the course of their investigation and their efforts to locate Cameron Keith, Spokane Police Major Crimes detectives contacted many of his associates. Last night at approximately 12:00 pm (midnight), detectives received information that Keith may be headed to a motel in the 7900 block of N. Division St. Members of the Patrol Anti-Crime Team (PACT), K-9 officers and detectives located and contacted Keith near that location. He was taken into custody without incident.

Although Keith is being held on an outstanding warrant, additional charges related to the death investigation are anticipated in the coming days.
