Deputies serving eviction notice discover dead man
Tualatin police say man found in trailer died of natural causes
Tualatin Police were called to an RV park Thursday afternoon on a report of a dead body.
Officers responded to the location at 18245 S.W. Pacific Drive in Tualatin just before 2:45 p.m.
Washington County civil deputies initially responded an hour earlier to the address to serve an eviction notice, but found the male occupant deceased inside the RV.
Tualatin police officers were called in to investigate the circumstances surrounding the man's death.
Upon arrival, officers smelled a strong odor of chemicals coming from the RV, and called on the assistance of the Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue Hazardous Materials Team. The Washington County Interagency Narcotics and the Interagency Lab Response Teams were also called in to assist.
No dangerous chemicals were found, according to officials.
Once officers determined it was safe to enter the RV, they proceeded with the death investigation. Investigators determined the 54-year-old man died of what appeared to be natural causes.
The name of the man was not released, pending notification of his family.
