At 2:41 p.m. on April 2, a deceased man in his late 50s was found in the water near the banks of the Willamette River close to Skinner’s Butte Park, upstream from the playground. Eugene Springfield Fire was in the area practicing water rescues and assisted to recover the body.
The man’s family has not yet been notified, so EPD will withhold his name until that happens. The Lane County Medical Examiner responded and took jurisdiction of the case.
EPD case 21-05014
