    OR - David 'Dave' Lewis, 46, Ashland, 4 September 2008

    http://www.myspace.com/553400635
    David's mountain cabin burned Sept. 4, 2008. A badly burned body found inside. No I.D. at this time.
    Remains sent to Texas DNA lab.
    Sheriff feels a mysterious death. Family feels it is murder of David.

    David E. Lewis, 46, was found dead Sept. 4 in the burned remains of a cabin he had rented for decades on Dead Indian Memorial Road. An autopsy confirmed that he was killed before the fire was set with accelerants, Fogarty said.

    Investigators suspect someone who knew Lewis had ventured up the long driveway to his secluded mountaintop cabin, then had come inside and killed him. Detectives aren't disclosing how Lewis died. They also note that the total destruction of the cabin has eliminated much evidence.

    Lewis was a longtime area resident, known for protecting the land and helping neighbors, his family said.

    "We've talked to a lot of people," Fogarty said, listing friends, family, neighbors, people Lewis did work for, teens partying at a nearby quarry and bow hunters stopped in the area the night before Lewis' death.

    "There's no business deal or personal relationship gone bad that we can see," Fogarty said. "There's no clear motive."

    DAVID E LEWIS. Found dead 9/4/08, in his burned down cabin.
    Another cabin was burned down that night.

    He lived about 15 miles from Ashland, Or in the mountains.

    It appears to be arson and murder.

    I live in Ashland and today we received a flyer in the mail. The flyer told the story of Dave Lewis's sad death in his cabin above Ashland. It also announced that a website has been started for Dave. It's quite thorough and it will be interesting to see if any good tips come from this:

    Have there been any updates on this case ? The local paper was reporting about some of the officers in the town being fired. Was the case properly investigated or the link ever disclosed ?

    I got into this thread researching a case and this came into it kind like 3rd hand research from some WI. cold cases..

    I read little bit. Appears something sure not right in what appears wonderfully nice lake and forest area.

    What little I read and I got National Forest bumps up to my many acres of land and across the road few miles there a lake.. I never ever heard govt. allow anything like that before on there land.
    Everything got to be moblie, none of this stay all year long deal.. You lucky to stay over a week before they will request you to leave..

    They hate my ATV but I stay on my side on my own land and they know they catch any hunters on my land without a signed permit by myself take them on to jail and I will prosecute..Only my very close kin or friends get yearly permits.

    Kind of sound like this poor guy was just trying to following same rules been taught to myself all my life about National Forest land.

    Sad to say it but appears this poor guy got killed over Greed.

    Hope they catch these people.

    I'm confused, Sleuth2010. I live in Ashland and haven't heard of officers being fired. Do you have a link to a local news story about that? Obviously, I'd like to know more.

    Dave's death is still a mystery to me.

    Dave's death is a mystery too me as well. I am surprised not much more was made of it. Two mysteries arsons, a murder, a fight between neighbors...
    I visited the site put up about Dave's death but it is pretty confusing. I wish whoever runs the site would try rewriting it to make it a little more clear cut.
    By my count there are way too many mysterious murders up here.

    Garren Beller who and Dave Lewis who ?
    Something is up in So. Oregon that two men
    have been *murdered and missing* and no one
    knows....what's up with law enforcments silence?
    This all happened in the area that the Sheriff owns land.
    Nothing or no public info. from LE
    For years ? Then Dave Grubbs is decapitated
    and the people are the only ones keeping that
    in the public. Weird.

    Well, the local news and newpapers continue to do stories on the victims here. Particularly Grubbs.

    As far as Lewis, if you read that website posted upthread, it sounds like he was somewhat involved (as a whistleblower) to some strange things up at a lake. IDK for sure, the website is hard to follow.

    No one local thinks the two (or the poor man that was murdered up in Central Point in a homeless camp) are connected.

    Unhappy Connection??

    There has been alot of talk about the connection between Troy Carney & Dave Lewis. I can tell you, Troy never knew Dave Lewis.
    There was an article in the mailtribune saying They think there might be a connection. They never really said there was.
    They are having a problem solving Troy's case cause he had no enemies & everyone liked him. Kinda like David Grubbs. They do alot of follow up articles about David Grubbs but nothing about Troy. I don't think that's right.
    I guess they feel Troy is not as important just because he didn't live there??
    I have asked them a few times to do an article on Troy and mention that I do have a $2,500 Reward for a conviction in his case. They more or less told me it's not news worthing enought... Another low blow..

    Troy's mom- I am so sorry for your loss. I want you to know that many people here have not forgotten about your son and I hope that someday his murderer is brought to justice.

    Regarding his story: have you tried other news sources like the Medford and Grants Pass editions of the "Sneak Preview"? It comes monthly in the mail and most people read it as it is full of local news and coupons. They do serious small articles every once in a while. You could also try getting on Jefferson Public Radio--- they are a local public radio station that has a large following here.

    Hi..
    Thank you for your reply. Back on May 22,2011 they did an article in the mailtribune & other TV stations about the playing cards. They put Troy's face on the cards, Troy is the seven of spade. On June 6, 2011, I did the KMED Radio with Bill Meyer show in Medford..
    When David Grubbs was murdered the Ashland Free Press did an article on Nov. 25 to Dec. 9th issue, The article by Vanessa Houk. ( OCCUPY TRUCH: VIOLENCE HAS NO RESOLUTION) She mentioned Troy & she mailed me a copy of it. So nice of her to do that. A couple weeks later she asked me to write a story about Troy and said she would publish it. Said it would be in after the New year. I don't think it was published cause I didn't get a copy.
    That was the last time Troy has been mentioned.
    I live on the east coast so I don't know the news papers out there.
    Have not heard of the "Sneak preview" or the Jefferson public Radio. I will check it out..Thank you again.
