    Investigators haven't turned up a motive or suspect in the death of Troy Dean Carney, 44, who was also found dead Sept. 4. Carney's body was found in a sleeping bag off a path that leads away from the Bear Creek Greenway between the Central Point freeway interchange and Table Rock Road. He had been shot at close range a few days earlier, most likely on Sept. 1, by someone he was comfortable around, Fogarty said.

    Unlike Lewis, who had deep, sprawling roots in the community, Carney was something of a loner, although he was remembered as friendly, investigators said.

    Carney had lived in the Rogue Valley a decade ago and had recently returned. In the interim he had worked as a "lumper," loading and unloading trucks and riding along with drivers.

    This summer, he had made his way from Idaho to Portland to Medford, where he stayed with a friend for a while. He didn't want to cause tension in the friend's home, so he set up camp near the Pilot truck stop in hopes of finding work again.

    Fogarty described Carney's transient lifestyle as high risk, but said he wasn't part of "the regular Greenway population." Many of the homeless people who live along the trail know one another and look out for each other, Fogarty said.

    Carney didn't appear to have clashed with others camped in the area and hadn't been robbed, investigators said. They have talked with people who were camped nearby, combed the area for evidence with metal detectors and divers in Bear Creek, and even pursued contacts in Carney's cell phone.

    "We're still tracking things we wouldn't normally check just because we can," Fogarty said of searching through Carney's cell phone records.

    Two murders in Jackson County on the same day, Dave & Troy discovered. Young men, in their 40s. It is sad what has become of the Valley. These murderers walk free. How did this happen to Central Point and Ashland ??

    Linda, welcome to WS. I am so sorry for us to be meeting under such circumstances. I can't comprehend what you must be going through. In searching for information on your son I was very impressed with the amount of exposure you have provided about his case on the net. Your persistence to update old threads even with no responses is commendable, IMO, FWIW. Don't give up! I always say someone, somewhere, knows something.

    If there is anything you think we may be able to do to help, please do not hesitate.

    I don't know if this is helpful but it reminds me of this case:

    http://crime.about.com/od/unsolved/a/allen_cutshall.htm

    Campers murdered in a tent without any clear motive, indication of another camp found nearby, but 400 miles away down the west coast.

    We are hoping so much someone comes forward.. My son was shot in the head while in his sleeping bag on the evening of Sept 1, 2008. Somebody knows who killed my son. Other people were camped near him. More then one person heard the shot that night. The shot that echoed through the night. Theroy is, someone attempted to rob him. Shot him, got spooked and ran.. The shot that killed my son, Troy Dean Carney 44.
    Troy is from Maine.. He worked loading and unloading Truck's. Made his way from Idaho Fall, spent 4 day's at the TIA Truck stop in Troutsdale Oregon. Near Portland. Then went down to Medford Oregon to visit a long time friend. Troy was in town only 3 weeks. He was a good and, very friendly guy. He called me and his 88 year old grandmother often...Please visit. Why would someone murder my son? Was it for few dollars??

    Joseph Henry Burgess makes a compelling suspect in that case, assuming he was still alive in 2004. If it is him however, I don't see why he would have attacked Carney who doesn't seem to fit his victim profile. Were the other people camping near Carney's site ever identified?

    Hi, I'm Troy Carney's Mom. I can't think of any reason why anyone would want to kill my son. He was camped out near the Pilot Truck stop near Central Point Oregon for just a few day's while waiting to get more work on another Truck. He worked his way around the country, loading and unloading Tractor Trailers. Police believe who ever murdered my son, Troy knew him for a very short time. Maybe 3 or 4 day's. Troy liked him so he was confortable being around him. Troy was a very friendly, trusting guy. Who ever did this, Troy considered him a friend. Troy was supposed to leave town that next morning...Hoping they find who killed him before he kills again..
