Columbia County, Oregon – A woman’s body was found in Columbia County. It was on the side of Neer City Road in Rainier. Deputies think they know who she is, but they’re contacting her family first before releasing her identity. There were no obvious injuries to her, but they’re not ruling anything out on her cause of death. They’re treating this as a crime scene until they prove otherwise.
