A La Pine man is dead from an apparent fall off the railroad overpass over Franklin Street near Third Street in Bend. Officers responded to the report of an unconscious man on Franklin Street just after 3 a.m. Saturday morning and found Preston Okesson, 21, with head injuries. A witness account indicates the man fell from the overpass. He was taken to St. Charles Bend, where he later died. Bend PD's Lt. Brian Kindel talks about the case. "It doesn't appear to be a homicide. You know,  it could have been a fall; could have been other factors from the fall. He had been around downtown and had been consuming alcohol that night. We are looking at it as a death investigation. We’re not going to rule until we have all of the facts." Bend Police investigators are conducting a thorough investigation and want to hear from you if you saw Okesson on the Bend Parkway or near the overpass early Saturday morning.
