Murder victim's body found at campsite in Oregon

LEBANON, OR (KPTV/AP) -

The Linn County sheriff's office says detectives are investigating the murder of a Lebanon man whose body was found at a remote campsite.

Sheriff Tim Mueller said the parents of 48-year-old Wayne Keith Klavano went to his remote campsite north of Highway 20 and found his body Tuesday. They grew concerned because he had missed an appointment.

The sheriff says his officers determined Klavano died of homicidal violence. He said no additional details about the cause of death were being released.

Mueller says Klavano spent a lot of time camping in the Cascade Mountains of eastern Linn County, making his living as a trapper.

The sheriff says detectives have developed "significant leads" and don't believe there is a threat to the public. Mueller says no additional information is being released right now.

Anyone with information is asked to call 541-967-3950.
