FAIRVIEW, Ore. – A woman was found dead in Blue Lake Park on Tuesday morning and Fairview police ruled her death a homicide.

Police on Wednesday identified the woman as 35-year-old Tiffany Fern Marie Jenks of Portland.

Bernie Meyer of the Fairview police said Jenks was found at 7:22 a.m. on the side of the road by passersby, but said it was too early in the investigation to say how exactly she died.

“Just the fact that we found a deceased person out here is suspicious in and of itself,” Meyer said.

Police closed Blue Lake Park during their investigation.
