A California man arrested in connection with a 1998 cold case homicide in Salem was extradited back to Oregon and arraigned on murder charges Thursday.

After years of living under an alias, Fernando Cortez, 38, was located at his home in Oxnard — a thousand miles away from where he allegedly shot and killed a Salem teen in a Circle K parking lot. 

Cortez is accused of shooting Alfredo Lopez-Nabor, 16, during a fight outside a convenience store on 4710 Portland Road NE on May 9, 1998.

It’s a film that deals with extreme, distressing violence against women, and that proper care wasn’t taken to make sure that this story was told the right way is troubling.

“The Snowman” has everything (just not a coherent plot): creepy abortion doctors, human trafficking, really bad Scandinavian techno, Michael Fassbender passed out in the snow, a terrible wig on Rebecca Ferguson, Chloe Sevigny chopping heads off chickens, J.K. Simmons attempting a Norweigan-ish accent, Val Kilmer singing “Happy Birthday” while chugging vodka out of
