PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The father of a woman suspected in a Washington state killing and the disappearances of two men says she's been addicted to heroin and methamphetamines and involved with white supremacists.

Authorities are trying to find 24-year-old Holly Grigsby and her 31-year-old boyfriend, David Joseph Pedersen. Police in Washington say the pair are suspects in the murder of Pedersen's stepmother. They're also wanted in the disappearances of his father and a 19-year-old Oregon man last seen leaving for a weekend jazz festival.

Fred Grigsby, of Portland, said Wednesday his daughter was, as he put it, "mixed up" with white supremacists. Photos show her boyfriend with tattoos indicating white power sympathies.

Grigsby says his daughter had drug addictions as a teenager. He also says she has a 2-year-old son, who's safe with the father.
