Sheriff’s investigators say the remains were of Springfield resident Roy Mathews. He was reported missing in April 2005 by his girlfriend.
On January 12, 2012 Roseburg Lumber reported they found human remains on a remote piece of land.
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office says further investigation reveals that Mathews’ death was a result of foul play.
Anyone who knew Mathews or has any information on his disappearance is asked to call Detective Aaron Hoberg at 541-682-4312.
