JUNCTION CITY, OR (KPTV) -

A worker discovered a body in a Junction City field.

Deputies responded to Milliron Road and Highway 99 at 4:34 p.m. Monday.

The man’s body was recovered and turned over to the Lane County Medical Examiner’s Office. The state forensic anthropologist is assisting in trying to identify the man.

Investigators said the body appeared to have been in the field for an extended period of time, possibly several weeks, making the identification process difficult. 

The man was between 5 feet 5 inches and 6 feet tall with short, dark hair and some facial hair. His age and ethnicity are still being determined.

Deputies said there is no indication the man was the victim of violence.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact investigators at 541-682-4141.
