Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office

At 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 3, 2021, Clackamas County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to a report of a deceased adult male at a single-family residence on the 1700 block of Oak Shore Lane.

Deputies arrived at the residence. The deceased -- identified as Jimmy Alan Pearson, 63, of Milwaukie -- had lived alone at the house. One of the man's employees found the body when the employee went to the residence to check on Pearson after he hadn't been seen at work.

Deputies investigated and found the death scene to be suspicious.

A Clackamas County Deputy Medical Examiner and Sheriffs Office detectives responded to the scene to continue the investigation.

Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) also responded to document the scene and collect evidence.

An autopsy performed by the Oregon State Medical Examiners Office determined the cause of death as homicidal violence.

A homicide investigation is currently underway. Detectives and forensics experts are following up on leads, conducting interviews, and processing evidence.

At this writing, the crime appears to be an isolated incident, and authorities do not believe there is a larger danger to the general public.

Detectives cannot release any further information at this time. Updates will be posted as the case develops.
