The discovery of a body this morning in a remote area north of Chemult has triggered activation of the Klamath County Major Crime Team.
The body was discovered shortly before 8:00 Sunday morning about 4 miles off of Highway 97 in the Walker Mountain area.
"We received information that there was an abandoned car that had been burned out, along a road." Said Michael Swanson, Klamath County Deputy District Attorney. "A hunter had found it while he was out hunting. We did activate the Major Crime Team to investigate the circumstances surrounding it."
Investigators aren't releasing any information about the victim, or how long the body may have been there.
Investigators weren't letting media near the area where the body was found, until the scene can be processed by Oregon State Police for clues.
Deputy District Attorney Swanson notes it's still unclear if it's a death investigation, or a homicide investigation...
"The investigation will probably determine which route we go. At this time, we don't have enough information, and that's exactly why we need to activate the Major Crime Team, and we anticipate the Oregon State Crime Lab coming over, and beginning some of the forensic information."
The investigation is still in the early stages, and police would like to hear from those with any information.
