Someone camping in the area reported the body after walking a dog that found the remains, according to Sgt. William Bailey of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
The state medical examiner’s office in Clackamas finished an autopsy on Tuesday, but Bailey said information—including age, gender, cause of death—would not yet be released as detectives continue reviewing the results. The sheriff’s office was also withholding the evidence found at the scene that prompted the agency to consider the case foul play. Bailey expected more information late Tuesday or Wednesday.
