Jacob Gonzales Wanted for Murder After Girlfriend Found Decapitated

ID #18-134

Island County, Washington sheriff’s deputies have been looking for Los Banos resident Jacob Gonzales, 34, who has been charged with the brutal killing of 26-year-old Katherine Cunningham, a 2009 Buhach Colony High graduate who also joined the Air Force reserves.

A man and some friends were walking on a 10-acre parcel of land in Camano Island, Washington, on March 3 when they stumbled upon her decapitated body near a bunker dug into the hillside, according to Island County Sheriff’s deputies. The bunker held a cache of supplies, ammunition and firearms, investigators have said.

Jacob Gonzales, 34 of Los Banos, is wanted on a $1 million warrant in connection with the murder of Atwater native Katherine Cunningham.

Murder Victim Katherine Cunningham

Katherine Cunningham allegedly murdered by Jacob Gonzales.

Cunningham had been dead several days when her body was discovered, authorities have said. Her DNA was found on the blade of a samurai sword. Gonzales was charged in June.

Cunningham’s sister has said the two dated “on and off” for at least five years, but she didn’t know their relationship status in Washington.

Gonzales has been missing since Cunningham was found dead. Authorities issued a $1 million nationwide warrant for Gonzales’ arrest. He is described as a Hispanic man who is 5-foot-9, 150 pounds and has black hair and hazel eyes. Authorities believe he may be armed.

They believe Gonzales may be hiding in the San Joaquin Valley area of California.
