Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into the death of an adult male found Monday morning near the west side of the State or Oregon Department of Human Resources building in Salem. The deceased male is identified as DAVID MICHAEL DEIS, age 45.

On October 7, 2013 at approximately 8:00 a.m., a Department of Human Services employee report seeing an unresponsive adult male sitting on a bench near bike racks on the west side of the Human Resources Building at 500 Summer Street NE. Medical responders arrived first and declared the man, later identified as DEIS, deceased. OSP troopers and detectives were dispatched to investigate the cause of death in cooperation with the Marion County medical examiner.

Initial scene investigation confirmed no obvious sign of injury or cause of death. DEIS is believed to be a local transient and next of kin were notified.
