An autopsy performed Monday morning at the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office on a Gresham-area man found deceased Saturday night along Highway 18 in the Van Duzer Corridor of Tillamook County was inconclusive. No cause of death has been determined and toxicology tests are pending to assist in the investigation.
KINNISSO GEMACHU DHIBOO, age 32, from Gresham, was the subject of a Portland Police Bureau missing person report on June 13th. Last seen around midnight, June 12th, DHIBOO was believed to be operating his black 1996 Infiniti J30 four door displaying Oregon license ZGK 474. The vehicle has not been located and is now listed as a stolen vehicle.
DHIBOO was seen that night with an unidentified late teen/early 20's female described as light skinned, thin build, 5'6" – 5'8" tall, with dark colored shoulder length hair.
On June 14, 2008 at approximately 10:00 p.m. Oregon State Police (OSP) responded to a report that a man walking his dog in a wide turnout on Highway 18 near milepost 11 found a body over the edge of the highway that subsequently was identified as DHIBOO.
