MEDFORD, Ore. – The widow of Valley Cab driver William “Huey” Huson is remembering her husband as they make memorial arrangements.
Meanwhile, Medford Police have released a description of the murder suspect. Police say it’s based on statements from witnesses in the area where William “Huey” Huson was last seen.
The possible suspect is described as a white man, 25 to 35 years old, about 6′ 2”, 170 to 190 pounds with pockmarked acne scars on his face at the time; he was wearing a black baseball cap and black “carhartt style” coat and jeans. Now that police have a possible suspect description, they will continue talking to people in the downtown area.
“And that’s what we’re hoping, that somebody will have seen him in some business in downtown Medford that maybe we could see him on some additional surveillance images,” said Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau. Police say they have received dozens of tips and urge anyone with any information to contact them.
The family of William Huson continued making arrangements for his memorial service on Tuesday. The wife of William Huson, Susan Huson said the body of her late husband was released on Tuesday, but was too damaged to be viewed by family.
Susan says the body of her husband will be cremated and some will be spread along the Oregon coast, a place her husband loved to visit. Susan says she will also save some of the ashes to remember him and Hudson’s son will use some of the ashes in the ink of a memorial tattoo.
Susan said her husband was extremely caring and would go out of his way to help others in need. She didn’t like the late night hours her husband would work and she says she even spoke to her husband after he called in what would be his last fare at 10:41 Saturday night.
“It was his birthday. He got this flag at 10:41pm and at 10:45 I called him to tell him happy birthday one more time before his birthday was over,” said Susan Huson.
A memorial fund has been set up to help the family cover the funeral costs. Donations can be made at any U.S. Bank location, just ask for the “Huey Huson Memorial Fund”.
