    OR - Cannon Beach, male body washed ashore, Apr'08 - Lawrence Nibler

    CANNON BEACH, Ore. -- Police and the county medical examiner are working to positively identify a body found washed up on the shore south of Cannon Beach Sunday afternoon.

    According to an Oregon State Police (OSP) news release, a beachcomber discovered the partial remains of an adult male about 4:45 p.m., April 6, about 2 ½ miles south of Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast.

    OSP troopers, Clatsop County Sheriff’s deputies and Cannon Beach Fire Department personnel responded to the scene.

    “Initial observations indicate the boy may have been in the water for a long period,” police said.

    Oh, Oh. I'm wondering about Nicholas. They don't give much information.

    You know, I thought about Nicholas also. I even posted a question about it on Nicholas's thread and then I deleted it because I didn't know how feasible it would be for Nicholas to end up on a beach in OR?? What are your thoughts?

    Second body in a week washes ashore in Oregon

    The police said Wednesday they still don't have a positive identification of the remains of a man found on the beach 2.5 miles south of Cannon Beach on Sunday.

    Police say those remains, too, had been in the water for a lengthy period.

    Police try to ID body washed up near Cannon Beach


    04:02 PM PDT on Monday, April 7, 2008


    KGW.com Staff and Associated Press

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Oregon State Police say human remains have washed up on the shore of Oregon's north coast. The police say the remains are those of a man, and they may have been in the water for a long time.


    A beach walker found the remains Sunday afternoon about 2.5 miles south of Cannon Beach, according to police.


    Lt. Gregg Hastings with the Oregon State Police told KGW the body was not believed to be that of Ross Barfuss, the 16-year-old who was swept out to sea while trying to rescue an 11-year-old on March 9th.

    I wonder what their definition of "a long time" is? Being in Oregon, it could have come from so many places.

    Was this a typo or was it a boy?

    It is only 2 hours to the water from Federal Way and 3 hours to Cannon Beach, OR. I guess it would be possible for it to be Nick.

    I think it must be a typo because earlier it said they found the partial remains of an adult male.

    Thanks, Mr. E. I wanted to clarify what area to search in the missing...child or adult. OR has many missing adult males and with nothing to go...it could be any one of them.

    Can they give a description at least? I am curious about Nicholas Francisco.

    Wasn't there a TV executive or producer or something that fell off a cliff while hiking in Oregon? I seem to remember he was hiking with a wife/GF and he fell into the ocean. This was 2-3 years ago.

    Wasn't that the producer of COPS Paul Stojanovich. I found an article from 2003 that says his body has already been recovered.

    With all the predators in the ocean one would think that a body would not be around very long in the water. Also they said that this was a male, so it could not have been too badly decomposed to know that right off, meaning it had to have some kind identifying solidness, and not just bones. IMO I would guess this vic has been dead no longer than two months. I say this because with tide currents, regular motion of the waters, and predators, it would not seem likely that a body that could immediatly be identified as either male or female would have been in those conditions very long.
