Body found beneath porch near Yakima

Police say the body of a 21-year-old man who was reported missing earlier this month has been found beneath a back porch of home in Terrace Heights near Yakima.

The remains of Gary Snell Jr. were found Thursday after Yakima police received a tip and searched the home along with Yakima County sheriff's officers. Detectives say a man at the residence, 20-year-old Sebastian Looney, has been arrested and booked for investigation of first-degree murder.

Investigators say it appears Snell died of multiple gunshot wounds. He was last seen Dec. 4.
