Fire Prompts Death Investigation
On Thursday, October 9, 2014 the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 1900 block of east Gregory Road, in Central Point after a storage trailer caught on fire. Firefighters with Fire District 3 extinguished the fire. However, once they started removing debris firefighters found human remains inside the trailer.
A Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Medical Examiner and several detectives responded to the scene. The remains were taken to a hospital for evaluation. At this point, the body has not been positively identified and cause of death has not been determined. There will be an autopsy performed next week to determine exact cause of death.
The case remains under investigation. More information will be released as it becomes available.
