Skeletonized Remains Discovered off Roxy Ann Peak Trail (Photo)

JCSO Case 22-0173

MEDFORD, Ore. – A man walking his dog off the Roxy Ann Peak trail discovered skeletonized human remains Monday evening. The discovery prompted Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) detectives to investigate. Tuesday morning, JCSO detectives recovered the body assisted by a Search and Rescue (SAR) ground team with Human Remains Detection (HRD) dogs. 

The skeletonized remains are in an advanced stage of decomposition. Investigations are ongoing by JCSO Medical Examiner detectives although there are no immediate indications of suspicious circumstances. An Oregon State Police forensic pathologist will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death. The name of the decedent will be released pending a positive scientific identification and next of kin notification. There is no further information available at this time.
