And while authorities said in the news release they have identified "at least one person of interest" in connection the deaths, they did not name the individual. They further noted, "Based on the available information to investigators, there is not believed to be any active danger to the community at this time."

No charges have been filed at this time, authorities added, declining to share further details related to the four cases citing the ongoing investigation.

The news comes five months after the Portland Police Bureau found Smith's body—the first of the four to be discovered—on Feb. 19 in southeast Portland.

Her body was found in a culvert near the Historic Columbia River Highway, with police describing the case as a "suspicious death," in a news release at the time.

Just six days later, the Polk County Sheriff's Office found Webster's body on a road in northwest Polk County. County officials, who called the matter a "suspicious death" in a Facebook post, said she frequented the Portland metro area.
