October 16th, 8:05 AM
Oregon State Police (OSP), with the assistance of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Lincoln County Medical Examiner, is continuing the investigation into the death of an unidentified female found Saturday morning on a Lincoln County beach near Beverly Beach State Park. There is no evidence at this time that the death is associated with a crime.
According to OSP Sergeant Greg Plummer, on the morning of October 15th the body of an adult Asian female was found by a person walking on the beach about a hundred yards north of Spencer Creek Bridge. OSP troopers responded to the scene to investigate. The deceased had no identification and appeared to have been in the ocean for a few days.
OSP has a lead on a possible identification but nothing more will be released at this time pending further work in conjunction with Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the medical examiner.
Lincoln County authorities say they found the car belonging to a missing Asian woman who was reported by her husband as missing late last week from their Neotsu home, in north Lincoln City. The car was parked at the Otter Rock viewing area off Highway 101 on Cape Foulweather. Beyond a fence, it’s a drop to the water of hundreds of feet. Her husband said she had left home without her prescriptions.
