Detectives rule Government Camp death accidental

Clackamas County detectives close case of Russell Martin Klyce's death


After Clackamas County detectives and personnel from the Clackamas County Medical Examiner’s Office further investigated the death of 39-year-old Russell Martin Klyce, who was found dead in his cabin near Government Camp on Thursday, Nov. 21, they made the decision to rule the death accidental and close the case on Friday, Nov. 22.

Upon first arrival, Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies determined that the circumstances of death looked suspicious. Klyce, who allegedly fell down the stairs, was able to get up and walk around before later succumbing to his injuries.

According to Sergeant Robert Wurpes, since the body was found at a spot different from that in which the injury occurred, detectives from the Sheriff’s Office Homicide and Violent Crimes Unit were called in to assure that nothing foul had occurred.
