Linn County Sheriff Jim Yon reports his Office received a call on Monday, April 6, 2020, at 4:58 p.m., regarding possible found human remains on Weyerhaeuser property in the 41000 block of Upper Calapooia Drive, Sweet Home.
The remains were located approximately a mile from Upper Calapooia Drive in a very densely forested area by hikers. Weyerhaeuser assisted the investigation by clearing an overgrown road to make access to the area easier.
We have tentatively identified the remains connected with a 2011 missing persons case. We are working with the State Medical Examiner’s Office to confirm the identity and cause of death. There is no further information at this point.
Linn County Search and Rescue assisted with the investigation.
