Man Found Dead with Gunshot Wound

Death InvestigationGRANTS PASS, Ore. — Police are asking for the public’s help in a death investigation of a man who was found dead.

On Saturday, officers found 37 year-old Juan Hernandez on Frutidale drive behind the bikekraft store. He had a gunshot wound to his head but police are not sure if that’s what he died from. They have released the photo of a man who was also seen with Hernandez that night.

Police believe the victim was walking from Herb’s La Casita Bar on Rogue River highway before his death.

“Anybody that happened to see anything or be in that area we’d be interesting in talking with them just to get a statement , even if its ‘hey I was there but I didn’t see this or that it helps us to eliminate some things,” said Lt. Jim Hamilton.

The medical examiner is expected to finish the victim’s autopsy by this week.
