An autopsy performed on a taxi cab driver killed this weekend confirmed that he died from a gunshot wound to the head.
The autopsy was conducted by medical examiner Dr. James Olson, who said 58-year-old William Roy "Huey" Huson's death was a homicide.
The man suspected of killing Huson was seen about 10:40 p.m. Saturday entering Huson's Valley Cab car near Howiee's on Front Street in downtown Medford.
Huson's body was found early Sunday in a field off Helo Way, and investigators said he was shot in the head and robbed.
The possible suspect was described as a white male with fair complexion, about 25 to 35 years old, 6 feet 1 inch to 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 170 to 190 pounds, police said.
He was last seen wearing a black ball cap, a black Carhartt-style coat and jeans.
Anyone who saw a suspect matching the description or has other information on the case is asked to telephone Medford police at 541-770-4783. Tips also can be submitted anonymously online at www.tipsubmit.com.
