Police investigating the killing of a man whose head was nearly severed a year ago have searched a farm property and a Southern Oregon University apartment.
Police Chief Terry Holderness told The Ashland Daily Tidings the searches don’t mean that whoever committed the killing lives at one of those places.
About 50 searchers took dogs and diving gear Wednesday to an 18-acre place at Talent, looking at an irrigation pond, fields, blackberry patches, old barns and sheds, junk piles and a home.
Half a dozen officers searched an apartment a few blocks from the murder scene and seized a vehicle. It’s part of the family student housing complex.
The victim was 23-year-old David Grubbs, a grocery clerk. He died along a bike path on his way home from work.
