Human remains found near Marble Creek


On September 19, 2014 the Baker County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a Bow hunter who reported finding Human Bones in the Marble Creek Area.  The Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene with the Oregon State Police and confirmed that they were human bones and also located clothing and a back pack in the area.  The Oregon State Police Crime Lab also responded and processed the scene.  

There is a tentative identification on the remains but the next of kin has not been notified.  We are also awaiting more positive identification from the Oregon State Medical Examiners Office once they receive the remains.

It appears this may have been a non violent death.  The bones also appear to have been there for 18 to 24 months.


All in the family at the ice cream shop

For the Baker City Herald

With every little change — from the new paint to the new floor — she thought of John Osborn.

“The whole time I was thinking ‘I wonder if John would like this?’” said Brandi Osborn, who now owns Charley’s Ice Cream Parlor with her husband, Mark Osborn, who is John’s son.

John Osborn died July 2. He was 61.

He’d been trying to sell the ice cream shop for several years, and when he passed away it was left to his wife, Joyce, who already has a full-time job.


Poll Question

Will you vote yes or no to legalize recreational marijuana use in Oregon?
