LINCOLN COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -Investigators have identified a woman who was found dead on a beach in Lincoln County early Thursday morning. 

Oregon State Police asked for the public's help with the investigation Friday morning. By Friday afternoon, troopers said the public's assistance helped lead to a positive identification in the case. 

Just after 1 a.m. Thursday, emergency crews responded to the report of a woman found dead on the beach between Devil's Punchbowl and Otter Rock.

According to OSP, the woman is believed to have washed up after an undetermined amount of time in the Pacific Ocean.

She was identified as 58-year-old Annette Fagan of Portland.

another covid death?


Are you autistic (people who are autistic have great difficulty reading human emotions) or just another psychopath (someone who can read human emotions but lacks empathy)? I am just trying to figure out how a human person alive right now could think "Covid-19" is a witty punchline. With over 160,000 dead so far in the US alone, and more dying everyday, I cannot help but wonder what the heck is actually wrong with you....Aspergers or Malevolent Narcissist?


I had a feeling they'd identify her fairly quickly. So sad for her family.

On second glance..Skyhawks Sports Academy, location in King City, and Wilson Lacrosse could be Wilson High School.

Well, they can start the search in Beaverton-Tigard. Skyhawks is the mascot of Southridge High School between SW Hall and SW Scholls Ferry Rd.


Surf can be an “underlying condition”.

Just curious

Would it be possible to give the size of the clothes? Large, medium, small?
