CLARKSTON, Wash. - UPDATE: A man from Clarkston is in the Asotin County Jail facing rape and murder charges in the death of a woman from Lewiston. 

53-year-old Bisir B. Muhammad appeared in court Wednesday morning through video. Up until this week, he worked as a dishwasher at Bogey's Restaurant at the Clarkston Quality Inn.

According to court documents, Muhammad is also known as Billy Joe Dallas. Under that name he has a criminal history, which includes two prior rape convictions.

Court documents show security video caught him outside the Clarkston Albertsons a week before the murder, speaking to the victim for nearly ten minutes.

Officers say 69-year-old Ina Clare Richardson often walked through the downtown Lewiston-Clarkston area. She was last seen late Thursday night, walking toward Third and Bridge Streets from the Clarkston Albertsons.

Friday morning, police found her body near a roadway between Beachview Park and Chestnut Beach. Court documents show she had been strangled to death. 

Tuesday, officers arrested Muhammad at his home near 12th and Sycamore Street, just 12 blocks away. 

Police are now looking for the driver of a white Dodge pickup truck that was seen in the Clarkston Port area the night of the killing. That person is not considered a suspect, but police think they may have helpful information.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE: 

Clarkston Police arrested a suspect in a recent rape and homicide case on Tuesday, but they are still hoping the public can help them with additional aspects of the investigation.

53-year-old Clarkston resident Bisir Bilal Muhammad was arrested and charged on Tuesday with 1st Degree Murder and 1st Degree Rape in connection to the death of 69-year-old Ina C. Richardson, who was found dead last Friday. 

Muhammad made his first court appearance on Wednesday where a judge set his bond at $1 million. 

Now Clarkston Police are working to strengthen their case and are asking for your help locating the owner/driver of the pickup attached to this story. Police told KHQ the individual and vehicle are not considered suspects, however they think the driver may have information they need. 

The pickup is a white, full-size Dodge single cab, 2 wheel-drive, long bed pickup with a tool box. It was seen in the Clarkston Port area near the Quality Inn and Gateway Golf around 11:30pm on November 6, 2014. Police say the owner/driver may have been fishing at the location, and the pickup may have been traveling with another car. 

If you recognize the pickup, you are asked to call Clarkston Police at 509-758-1680 or 509-758-2331.
