Oregon man’s death now investigated as homicide

MEDFORD, Ore. — A Medford man found dead at the bottom of a cliff last week may have been the victim of a homicide.

Michael C. MacCallum was reported missing by friends and family earlier this week. The 34-year-old was last seen in the area of Hilt in Siskiyou County.

The Medford Mail Tribune reported Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey says evidence points to the possibility of a homicide. He did not identify the evidence.

Police are trying to determine whether MacCallum was camping in the area or if he met with people there in the hours leading to his death.
