Police acted on a tip from a member of the public and found Lutter’s body near a remote forest service road. He was pinned under his motorcycle about 15 feet from the road down a 12 feet embankment.
He was on a trip headed to John Day, and then on to Medford using back roads. Police said he was riding a white Triumph “Tiger” motorcycle wearing a lime green and black helmet.
Police said Saturday that his cell phone’s last known location put him in the Big River in Southern Lane County area. Jackson, Lane and Douglas counties participated in the search.
