Detectives trying to ID victim of '86 killing near St. Paul

SALEM — Cold-case detectives with the Marion County Sheriff's Office hope the public can help identify a man murdered nearly 30 years ago.

Fishermen found the body at Horseshoe Lake, near St. Paul, on October 25, 1986. The sheriff's office says the victim was a 5-foot-4 Hispanic man, likely in his 20s, and he had several distinct tattoos that might jog the memory of someone who knew him.

The tattoos include a woman's head with a teardrop underneath her eye; a woman's head wearing a sombrero; a scorpion under the initials “R.M.F.” or “H.M.F”; and the name “Felix” in script.

Investigators suspect the man lived and worked around the Woodburn-St. Paul area.

Those with information are asked to call the Marion County Sheriff's Office at (503) 540-8006.
