LANE COUNTY Ore. (KPTV) – An investigation is underway after human remains were found off a Lane County road in late May, deputies say.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office revealed on Monday the remains were found May 26 off West Boundary Road, east of Lowell. The remains were discovered in a wooded area, a short distance from the road.

The body has been identified as a woman, likely between 30 and 50 years of age, according to the sheriff’s office. She is believed to have had dark hair and to stand between 5 feet and 5 feet 8 inches tall. The body was found with a white “Huf” shirt with green stripes (sleeves had been removed) and a light-colored shirt with an elephant print on it.

The sheriff’s office said the condition of the remains indicate the victim had likely been deceased for several weeks prior to the discovery of the remains. Her death is being investigated as suspicious.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the woman is asked to contact the Lane County Sheriff’s Office at 541-682-4150, opt. 1.
