    Emergency dispatchers said the body was discovered at Southwest 1st Avenue and Arthur Street just off Naito Parkway.

    There’s no word on the identity, gender or age of the person found dead.

    I assume it's this case:

    This article doesn't have the name but some more information, it was a man and apparently investigated as homicide.

    Medical personnel were called to the scene in the 2500 block of Southwest First Avenue near Sheridan Street right after 8 a.m., where they found a man slumped over in a bus kiosk, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, spokesman for Portland police.
    There is a vacant building at the site and apartment complexes a few blocks away.

    Simpson said it was not clear who called 9-1-1.
    Another article seems to be talking about the same case, the dates and streets match and the bus thing matches.

    Donald Ray Polk Found Dead At SW Portland Bus Shelter

    POSTED: 5:39 pm PDT November 2, 2010
    UPDATED: 7:11 pm PDT November 2, 2010

    Portland police say officers were called to a bus shelter at about 8 a.m. Oct. 21 at Southwest 1st Avenue and Sheridan Street and found Donald Ray Polk dead of what officers said were stab wounds.

    Detectives say “Pokey,” as he was known to friends, is believed to have been homeless at the time of his death. Police do not know where he might have been staying.

    Polk was last seen alive at a 7-Eleven store at Southwest First Avenue and Arthur Street at about midnight, police say.

    Yet another link with mostly the same information.
