A multi-agency investigation led by Oregon State Police (OSP) detectives is continuing in connection with the discovery of a partially decomposed body discovered Sunday afternoon in a remote, wooded area south of Highway 6 in the Browns Camp Campground area of the Tillamook State Forest, about one hour west of Portland. Officers are proceeding as if the case is a homicide.
The body is that of a Caucasian or Hispanic male in his late 20s to early 30s, 5-foot 6-inches tall with a small build, with very short dark hair. The man was wearing blue jeans; and a white “Puma” running-style sock with a black sole, gray horizontal stripe above the black sole, and the word PUMA in large letters on the outside forward of the opening.
Preliminary investigation indicates there was an attempt to prevent positive identification but detectives declined to go into further details due to the ongoing investigation. Detectives are proceeding as if this is a homicide investigation unless other information is learned later to indicate otherwise.
