Posted: June 1st, 2012 4:55 PM

 

The investigation into the death of an adult male Wednesday in Harney County is continuing by Oregon State Police (OSP) Criminal Investigations Division detectives with the assistance of the Harney County District Attorney's Office.

 

Information authorized for release by the Harney County District Attorney's Office indicates the ongoing investigation using fingerprints confirmed the deceased man is PHILLIP LLOYD FERGUSON (aka: ROY VERNON COX), age 62.
