Family of slain Coos Bay doctor offer reward for information about his death

NORTH BEND, Ore. – The family of an Oregon doctor who was killed this past summer is offering a reward for information about his death.

In the early morning hours of August 2, 2021, the North Bend Police Department got a 9-1-1 call regarding some sort of medical emergency at a home on Stanton Avenue in North Bend.

When officers arrived, they found 45-year-old Craig Joshua Jackson dead from homicidal violence.

North Bend police said Jackson was a physician at Bay Clinic in Coos Bay.
