BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County District Attorney says the death of a retired firefighter was not due to foul play. John Love's body was found in a large hole at a northeast Bend construction site on February 11, covered in snow. While the exact cause of death has not yet been determined by the state Medical Examiner, D.A. John Hummel says the local investigation is now closed. 

 

Hummel released a statement Wednesday saying that he and all local first responders extend sympathies to Love's family and friends, "His impact on our community carries forward through the lives of the people he literally helped save during his service as a firefighter."

 

Love was reported missing February ninth. He was last seen alive several days earlier, when a taxi dropped him off in front of his northeast Bend home.
