About Ellen F. Rosenblum
A Morrow County Sheriff's reserve deputy wanted for murder was arrested this morning without incident during a traffic stop in Harney County.
Steven Montie Crum (DOB: 06-12-1981) was arrested for the murder of Jessica Rae Killian, whose body was discovered on Oct. 4 on a farm near Ione. The investigation is ongoing.
Every criminal defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
The Oregon Department of Justice is prosecuting the case at the request of Morrow County District Attorney Justin W. Nelson in order to ensure the integrity of the process because of the defendant's involvement in law enforcement.
The case is being investigated by the Oregon State Police with assistance from the Umatilla/Morrow County Major Crime Team. Anyone with any information should call the Morrow County Sheriff's Office at 541-676-9061.
