Police discover body near Bend Parkway 

After responding to a vehicle crash east of Bend Parkway near Hawthorne Avenue last Wednesday evening, Bend police officers discovered a man's body nearby between the Parkway and rail lines.

According to a press release from the Bend Police Department, police responded to a car accident involving a vehicle running into the BNSF tracks as a result of a medical condition Dec. 27. No injuries were reported in relation to the crash, but while investigating the accident police found the body of 24-year-old Robert Michael McKinney. While an investigation is still underway, police say that the incidents are unrelated and they don't suspect foul play.

McKinney doesn't have a permanent address in Bend and police are asking that anyone with information about McKinney's whereabouts between Dec. 9 and Dec. 27 call Officer Eric Russell at 541-693-6911.
