Body found at wetlands


At about 10:30 p.m. last Sunday, April 6, a Forest Grove police officer preparing to patrol Fernhill Wetlands found a pickup in the parking lot with the body of a 66-year-old white male inside. The victim, a Forest Grove resident, had two gunshot wounds, including a fatal shot to the head. Detectives were called to investigate the suspicious circumstances, but eventually concluded the death was a suicide. That was later confirmed by a relative who received a suicide note from the victim in the mail.
