Searchers believe they have found the body of a murdered Bend woman, but the Santiam River is to treacherous to recover it. On Saturday, kayakers spotted the body trapped in tree branches in an eddy of the Santiam. It's believed to be the body of murdered Bend woman Lori Blaylock. By the time Marion County deputies hiked into the remote location, they opted to try to recover the body Sunday. However, after repeated attempts divers had to give up because the current is unsafe.   Recent rains have caused the outflow from Detroit Reservoir to double to 5,000 CFS as of yesterday. Officials say no positive identification of the body has yet been made, but searchers say the timing and location of the discovery make it highly likely that it's the body of Lori Blaylock. Her husband Steven has been arrested and is charged with her murder. He is due back in court next week.
