Washington County Sheriff/Facebook Jeremiah Johnston is suspected in the murder of aspiring model Sara Zghoul in Aloha, Oregon.

An Oregon man who was released from prison last year is accused in the horrific murder of model and actress Sara Zghoul, whose decapitated and dismembered body was discovered stuffed into two suitcases inside an abandoned BMW, The Oregonian reports.

Jeremiah “Jeremy” Johnston, 35, was arrested Thursday night after being discovered in a ravine after a failed suicide attempt following the death of Zghoul, a young mother who was forging a career in the modeling world. Johnston remained hospitalized Monday and his name has not been publicly released by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Officials said he would be identified after he is booked into jail and charged.

A motive for the killing has not been released. It is also not known if or how Johnston and Zghoul knew each other, but The Oregonian reports that homes belonging to their families are about a half mile apart in Aloha, a community in the Beaverton area where Zghoul was found dead.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. Police Found Zghoul’s Mutilated Body Stuffed Into Suitcases

According to Fox 12, the suspect, identified by The Oregonian as Jeremy Johnston, was taken into custody not long after Zghoul’s body was discovered in the BMW. He was detained in Beaverton, Oregon.

A local man described to Fox 12 seeing the suspect leaning against a tree in the woods and wailing. “I could see a murderer right below our deck,” the witness told the television station. “The tone of his voice when he was yelling, it was very desperate.” The witness told the television station that he called 911, adding, “It was really cold and rainy, and he’s just sitting out there leaning against a tree.”

The suspect was found in a ravine, where he had allegedly tried to commit suicide, according to Newsweek. The suspect kept saying that he needed help, a witness said.

According to Oregon Live, the suspect tried to kill himself by slashing his throat and wrists, and authorities searched a home associated with him. The suspect remained hospitalized on January 28.

Jeremiah Ward Johnston has a lengthy criminal record in Oregon, according to court records. He has multiple drug convictions dating back to 2014. In July 2015, Johnston was sentenced in Washington Circuit Court to 23 months in prison for delivery of cocaine, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine, court records show.

According to The Oregonian, Johnston was released from prison in May 2017. He was then arrested in August 2017 in Multnomah County, Oregon, and charged with cocaine possession. He told police he had been released from prison three months earlier.

Johnston pleaded guilty in September in that case and was sentenced to a year and a half of probation and entered a drug treatment program, the newspaper reports. He told jail staff he had been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and was taking antidepressant medication, according to The Oregonian.


4. Investigators Searched Johnston’s Mother’s Home in Aloha

Police were searching Johnston’s mother’s house in Aloha, an unincorporated community in the Beaverton, Oregon, area, in the days after the Zghoul’s death, according to KATU-TV.

The home is located in the 8000 block of Southwest 166th Place. According to a resume Johnston posted to Indeed.com, he has worked previously as an account executive for Lynmar Enterprises, Inc., a company owned by members of his family and operated out of the Southwest 166th Place home.

Johnston attended Aloha High School and has also worked as a customer service representative at Wells Fargo from 2005 to 2007 and a mortgage loan officer at Bank of America from 2007 to 2012.


5. Sara Zghoul Was Remembered as a Vibrant Young Mother With a Bright Future

Zghoul, 28, was remembered by friends and loved ones for her love of her young child and her beauty, which led to modeling assignments. Wrote one friend on Facebook, “I wish I could’ve been there to protect you because this would’ve never happened! Praying for you and your family. Go with God and rest in His loving arms..” Another wrote: “#rip your a beautiful angel up above.”

Jessica Winters, a friend, told Fox 12 she was in shock, saying, “I’m just like comprehending everything. She was so outgoing, she walks in a room and you just have to be happy.”

“Rip you were a beautiful young mother now your a beautiful angel 😇 prayers for your family 😪😪🙏🏼 so very sad,” wrote another friend. “My heart hurts so much.. I’m still in disbelief that your gone.. you were my sister and I had some of the best times of my life with you.. at a loss for words all I can say is i deeply love you Sara Zghoul Rest In Peace you beautiful soul❤️,” wrote another.

“I’m sorry u left the way u did you touched lives and brought smiles to anyone around u your child will love u forever and ever and always know the beauty u posesed until we meet again friend,” wrote another man.

On one of her Facebook pages, Zghoul wrote that she studied Pharmacology at Portland State University. On a recent modeling photo of herself, she wrote, “Runway show I walked in for a few different brands but here, I am sporting the clothing line ‘Issuez’. I’m sorry to all the wonderful photographers – I do not know who took this one. ❤️” Her Instagram page is filled with modeling shots.

She wrote under one picture of her young son, “what an amazing boy God blessed me with. I love you to the moon and back an infinite number of times! 😘” She had also posted a recent photo of a missing young woman on her social media pages.

She also wrote with one photo: “Live dangerously occasionally.” Some of the young woman’s social media posts are heartbreaking in retrospect. “I don’t know how my story will end but nowhere in the text will it read ‘I gave up.’ Life gets better if you want it to. And I love mine,” she wrote in one.

She touched lives during her short life. Gregory McKelvey, a friend since childhood, told Fox News, “She was known for being a great person and she touched so many people. It felt like she knew everyone and losing her is a big loss for the community.”

Re non-S.P.E.C.T-based Psychiatry vs S.P.E.C.T.-based Psychiatry…

In light of the importance of a principle in Quantum Mechanics known as the Uncertainty Principle, it will eventually be revealed that S.Q.U.I.D. Technoma (i.e., Superconducting Quantum Interference Device technoma) is more efficient and effective than Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (i.e., S.P.E.C.T.) in med(icly) imaging the brain’s “Cognitive Psychophysiougiéology” and its “Cognitive Psychophysiopathology”… and due to the need to be W-H-O-L-L-Y N-O-N-I-N-V-A-S-I-V-E re the measurement/ diagnosis of the brain’s “Cognitve Psychphysiohugiésis” and “Cognitve Psychphysiopathosis”… and specifically with regard the brain’s Quantum Biology (note the dialogue at 45:05 within the second URL above!)! And further, in light of the importance of the findings by the late Dr. John Lorber, the current emphasis with regard to research into the Frontal Cortex, will have to be reevaluated!…
_______________
.
The most advantageous area in brain research today (and pertaining, specifically, to investigations into the brain’s PRIMARY CONTROL MECHANISMS, AND FUNCTION!), is the research juncture between the investigation of the Lateral Frontal Pole Prefrontal Cortex of the Ventrolateral Frontal Cortex (see doctors Franz-Xaver Neubert, Matthew Rushworth, and Rogier B. Mars, of Oxford University… and the research findings behind the search engine search result, titled, “Scientists Appear To Have Located the Conscience”, at,
h-t-t-p://timesofindia(dot)indiatimes(dot)com/home/science/Scientists-appear-to-have-located-the-conscience/articleshow/29632772.cms), and the work of the late Dr. John Lorber, of Sheffield University, involving what I’ve labeled, “Cognitively Mature Hydrocephalic Subjects (the latter subjects, reported in Lorber’s paper, ‘Is Your Brain Really Necessary?’)”! And inasmuch, as, I-T M-U-S-T B-E R-E-V-E-A-L-E-D how “Cognitively Mature” Hydrocephalic Subjects are capable of exhibiting NORMAL COGNITIVE CONTROL, W-I-T-H-O-U-T T-H-E P-R-E-S-E-N-C-E of what doctors Franz-Xaver Neubert, Matthew Rushworth and Rogier B. Mars have identified as (what I’ve labeled as!) the “Throne of Conscienceness”: the Lateral Frontal Pole Prefrontal Cortex, of the Ventrolateral Frontal Cortex! In other words, if the Lateral Frontal Pole Prefrontal Cortex is, indeed, the “Throne of Conscienceness (though, otherwise labeled!)” in the view of the aforementioned researchers at Oxford University, then I-T M-U-S-T B-E R-E-V-E-A-L-E-D how Lorber’s Cognitively Mature Hydrocephalic Subjects (yea!… any such persons existing/ extant today!)… AND, THAT/ WHICH DO NOT POSSESS EVIDENCE OF HAVING A LATERAL FRONTAL POLE PREFRONTAL CORTEX!… have been able to demonstrate– and are, today, able to demonstrate!– N-O-R-M-A-L C-O-G-N-I-T-I-V-E C-O-N-T-R-O-L! And… the only T-R-U-L-Y N-O-N-I-N-V-A-S-I-V-E technoma that/ which can provide sufficient “quantum specificity” associated with this yet to be elaborated COGNITIVE CONTROL MECHANISM within “Cognitively Mature” hydrocephalic subjects– specifically!– is a Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (or S.Q.U.I.D.!… and due– primarily!– to the requirement to adhere to the Uncertainty Principle in Quantum Mechanics, in one’s measurement of Quantum Phenomena associated with the “Quantum Biologic Epiphenomenon” linked to Cognition!)!… and applied to what is known as the P300 Complex (the P300 Complex… and coupled with approximately a millimeter of neural tissue lining the inside of the skulls of Lorber’s– and similar– hydrocephalic subjects… the only available cognitive substrates within such Cognitively Mature Hydrocephalic subjects! The S.Q.U.I.D.-measured bioelectromagnetic phenomena of the P300 Complex, having been examined in NORMAL SUBJECTS, by researchers L. KAUFMAN, Y. OKADA, J. TRIPP and H. WEINBERG, at NYU!)!
.
[In the study by the late Dr. Wilder Penfield, titled, Mystery of the Mind, Dr. Penfield reveals!… (through his investigations into the mechanisms and dysfunction underlying Psychic Epilepsy, and how the “Centrencephalic region” of the brain’s Cognitive Psychophysiology is impacted by these mechanisms and dysfunction!)… that any “invasive mechanical compromise” of the specific Centrencephalic region of the brain– e.g., by way of the errant use of a scalpel!– can effect “paranoid-like” symptoms (and worse, a coma or death!)! Likewise, “Environmental compromises” of this region– e.g., through toxins and the use of psychotropic products!– can also invoke similar “paranoid-like” effects!… as can gene abnormalities! And so… to understand the mechanisms underlying Autism– for example!… and how “paranoid-like” symptoms become manifest through the Diencephalonic region of our respective Cognitive Psychophysiologies!… we must first understand how this region is “hard-wired”… and which mechanisms are at play in its Cognitive dysfunctional expressivity! However!… our respective measurements must be WHOLLY NONINVASIVE! Psychic Epilepsy research is one key to an understanding of Autism!… and, how “Hyper Cognitive Sensitivity”, is made manifest!]
