Deceased person found in Bend park


Police responded Thursday to a report of a dead person at Sawyer Park in Bend.

Officers were called in just after 7:00 a.m. They were seen around a section of the park’s west side, across the bridge from the Deschutes River.

Bend Police said it conducted an investigation and determined there was no danger to the public at large.

(Editor’s note: A previous version of this story Thursday incorrectly stated that police said no investigation was needed. Bend PD said Friday an investigation was conducted, as it always is in cases of deaths, and determined there was no danger to the public.
