Oregon State Police, working in cooperation with the Clatsop County Medical Examiner, are trying to positively identify the remains of an adult male found Sunday afternoon washed up on the beach about 2 1/2 miles south of Cannon Beach.
On April 6, 2008 at approximately 4:45 p.m. a person walking on the beach found the partial remains of an adult male south of Cannon Beach. Oregon State Police, Clatsop County Sheriff's Office, and Cannon Beach Fire Department personnel responded to the scene. Initial observations indicate the body may have been in the water for a long period.
An Oregon State Police detective from the Astoria Area Command office is the lead investigator.  Seaside police are assisting.  No further information for release until positive identification has been made.
