Death of a Young Redmond Woman Found in a Canal is Ruled an Accident

REDMOND, OR -- The body of 19-year old Jamie Garr was found in a canal Sunday morning.  She was last seen at Timbers Tavern around 11 p.m. Saturday night, and she was reported missing at around 3 a.m. after friends and family couldn't find her.  Police were told Garr was intoxicated when she left the bar.  Lt. Mike Kidwell with the Redmond Police Department says, "We were told there had been some sort of argument between the two of them and gotten separated at that point.  She had last been seen by another witness at the back of Timbers."


Lt. Kidwell says this is a fatal reminder of the dangers of drinking.  "When you combine alcohol and extremely cold weather, that brings on the dangerous effects and the onset of hypothermia."  He says, "We caution people if you are going to be drinking, take a taxi, get a ride from someone, don't try to walk in the extremely cold weather."  


The investigative report is being forwarded to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission for possible action against an establishment that served an underage patron.
