Remains found in Oregon are those of missing Spanaway man

The Associated Press

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Human remains found earlier this month in Klamath County have been identified as those of a Washington state man missing since 2012.

The sheriff’s office said Wednesday indications at the time Joseph Aaron Marsh disappeared suggested he was despondent, and an autopsy has confirmed that the cause of death was suicide.

The sheriff’s office said a car rented to Marsh was found on an abandoned forest road in 2012, and authorities couldn’t find him in a search of the area or when they went to his home in Spanaway.

A mushroom picker found his remains Oct. 23.
