On May 31, Eugene Police released the identity of the person who was found deceased as Noah Dewitt, age 24, of Eugene. On February 15, around 2 a.m., Noah Michael Dewitt, age 24, left the home of a friend on W. 27th Avenue, on foot.

Previous Information from May 27, 2015:

At 12:58 this afternoon, May 27, a Eugene Public Works crew were performing routine maintenance at the Fillmore Pump Station, 1405 Briarcliff Lane, when they discovered a deceased person at the bottom of a large underground ‘wet well,’ for wastewater. They called 9-1-1 and at this time personnel from multiple agencies are working to recover the body. Its location at the bottom of the shaft makes the recovery effort hazardous and will require some time to complete, so no new information is expected tonight.

Responding agencies include Public Works, Eugene Police Patrol, Eugene Police Violent Crimes Unit, Eugene Police Forensic Evidence Unit, Eugene Springfield Fire and EMS, and the Medical Examiner.
