KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Oregon State Police Criminal Investigations Division, with the assistance of the State Medical Examiner’s Office, is continuing the investigation today into the death of a 60-year old Klamath Falls man whose body was found this morning in the brush off OC&E Woods Line State Trail near Olene in Klamath County. The preliminary investigation found no sign of foul play and the man’s death may be associated with a medical-related problem, according to Oregon State Police officials.
On Tuesday, April 2nd at about 12 noon, OSP Klamath Falls troopers and detectives responded and confirmed the body of a fully clothed deceased adult male was found a quarter mile from Olene Store in the brush about 30 yards off the trail. A hiker reported finding the deceased male while traveling along the trail.
Detectives learned the man was dropped off at the trail on Monday and failed to contact a family member as originally planned. An autopsy is pending by the State Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the cause of death. The man’s name will be released Thursday.
