Missing Oregon mom found dead in remote area

Post By RelatedRelated Post

DUNDEE, Ore. — Missing Dundee mom Jennifer Huston has been found dead in a remote area of Yamhill County near Sheridan, police said.

A property owner spotted her SUV along a dirt road about 1/8 of a mile from the closest home in the rural farming community near Sheridan. He alerted police around 10:30 a.m., and deputies soon found Huston’s body about 50 yards away from her vehicle, according to Capt. Jeff Kosmicki with the Newberg-Dundee Police Department.

Kosmicki would not discuss the condition of the body, but said Huston was still wearing the outfit she had on the night she went missing — black yoga pants, a sweatshirt and sneakers. He said there were no obvious signs of foul play or indications that her SUV had been involved in a crash.

He added that the area just off Highway 18 had previously been searched by air, but a heavy canopy of trees hid Huston’s vehicle.

A mobile team with the Oregon State Crime Lab will comb the area for any additional clues and autopsy results could be released as soon as Wednesday, he said.

“We’re still open-ended. We’re still going to take precautions,” Kosmicki said of the ongoing investigation. “We’re keeping an open mind, but I think we have a pretty good idea of what happened.”
