KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a body found in a wooded area of southern Oregon is that of a 32-year-old Klamath Falls man who was driving a vehicle that fled from police on Dec. 19.

Lt. Josh Brooks said the body found Friday by a university professor and some students on a field trip was about a mile south of Highway 66. A Jackson County deputy medical examiner and a police detective identified the body as that of Christopher Sellars. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.

On Dec. 19, troopers from Klamath Falls tried to stop an orange Ford Expedition for a traffic violation on Highway 66 in Klamath. The driver took off westbound toward Ashland. During the chase, a large gas can was lit on fire and thrown toward a state police vehicle. The Expedition finally stopped and two occupants fled on foot. One passenger remained and was taken into custody. A second passenger was found the next day.
