ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - Sheriff’s detectives in Linn County are investigating the death of a man whose body was covered by a thin layer of snow.

Sheriff Bruce Riley says deputies and detectives responded Wednesday night after a caller reported that a stranger was deceased in his driveway east of Albany. There was no sign of foul play.

The sheriff says the man’s wallet contained cash but no photo identification. No abandoned vehicle was in the area.

Riley described the body as that of a middle-aged man. He was about 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, and had brown hair, hazel eyes and a full, gray beard.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Linn County Sheriff’s Office at 541-967-3950.
