At 5:38 p.m. on Sunday, July 31, Eugene Police received a call regarding a deceased man at a home in the 5000 block of Austin Way. After responding, patrol called the EPD Violent Crimes Unit to investigate as the circumstances are suspicious. The man has not yet been identified and therefor next of kin have not been notified. That is part of the reason for not releasing additional information. The manner and cause of death have yet to be determined. With the information we have at this time, we do not believe others in the public are at risk.
We will provide more information as we are able.
The Violent Crimes Unit and Forensic Evidence Unit, as well as the Lane County Medical Examiner have been on scene.
