Officials search for two teens suspected of homicide

The Latah County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide that is believed to have occurred Monday just off state Highway 8 east of Troy in a wooded area.

Latah County Sheriff Richie Skiles said the body of a 18-year-old Pullman resident, Timothy Reeves, was found by law enforcement Wednesday and it was determined he had died from a single gunshot wound.

As part of the investigation, the sheriff’s office is attempting to locate Keagan Tennant, 17, of Pullman, and Matthew McKetta, 18, of Moscow. Keagan Tennant is the son of Chris Tennant, who is a commander at the Pullman Police Department.

LSCO released Reeves’ name Friday as well as the list of felonly charges filed against Keagan Tennant and McKetta. Keagan Tennant, who will be charged as an adult, faces charges of attempted 1st degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, along with several other felonies related to allegations of trying to cover up the killing. McKetta faces felonies regarding the alleged cover up as well, but he has not been charged with anything related to the actual murder, like Keagan Tennant has.

According to police, Keagan Tennant and McKetta are believed to be armed and dangerous, and they may be driving a white 2002 Pontiac Grand Am automobile with Idaho license IBX8758. Skiles said the vehicle was taken in a car jacking Wednesday night in Moscow a little before 11 p.m.

LCSO cautions the public to not approach these individuals and to call 911 if they are seen. If anyone has information relating to either of these individuals, contact the Latah County Sheriff’s Office at (208) 882-2216.
