The victim was not immediately identified.

STAYTON, Ore. (AP) – A Marion County sheriff’s spokesman says a missing hunter has been found dead outside of Stayton. Searchers had been looking for 37-year-old Corey Fred since Saturday after he sent a text saying he was going hunting on his property next to forest land and did not return.

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) – A northeast Oregon man convicted in a fatal 2011 shooting at a plumbing shop near Milton-Freewater has been sentenced to 27 years to life in prison.
